Best Margarita Recipes

Do you want it frozen or on the rocks? Salt or sugar rim? Fruit-flavored or classic? While purists will argue that there's only one true way to drink one, we believe that part of the fun of the drink is the variety.

Margaritas are deceptively simple — tequila, lime, and some orange liqueur — but there are about as many varieties as there are reasons to drink one. Maybe sometimes you want a frozen blueberry margarita with a salt rim, other days, you go classic. And some days, you just want it all.
Strawberry and basil are a classic summer combo for a reason. Do yourself a favor and blend a batch of these up on a warm day, find a rooftop, and kick your feet up.
In a blender, combine the avocado, crushed ice, agave nectar, tequila, triple sec and cilantro sprigs; blend until smooth. Pour the margarita into the prepared glasses. Garnish the rims of the glasses with lime wedges.
In a blender, puree the watermelon and sugar until smooth. Pour the puree through a fine mesh strainer. Transfer the liquid to a pitcher and add the lime juice, tequila and 4 ounces of the Triple Sec. Stir to combine.
