Here are five recipes to try, from the classic margarita on the rocks to spicy, fruity and even savory. ¡Salud!


Classic Margarita

You can't go wrong with a classic margarita on the rocks: 2 ounces of tequila, 1 ounce of orange liqueur and 1 ounce of lime juice. The only question is salt or no salt?

Pineapple-Jalapeño Margarita

Turn up the heat with this margarita featuring sweet pineapple juice and spicy jalapeños for an addicting combination. This cocktail calls for a sugar and black pepper rim for a surprising twist. Yum!

Savory Margarita

I bet you've never had a savory margarita before. This cocktail gets its gorgeous hue from fresh red bell pepper juice. Your friends will want the recipe the second they see you sipping it during your virtual Cinco de Mayo party.

Blackberry-Mint Margarita

Muddle some fresh blackberries to make this vibrant margarita that's accompanied by refreshing mint leaves.

Strawberry-Basil Margarita

This pretty pink margarita is a little bit sweet and a little bit tart and every bit delicious! Coat the rim in sugar for an extra-sweet finish.
