Margaritas are a classic and popular cocktail that originated in Mexico and are now enjoyed worldwide. This drink is typically made with tequila, lime juice, and orange liqueur, served over ice in a salt-rimmed glass. Margaritas can be made in many different variations, with fruit or flavored syrups added for a sweet twist, or with a spicy kick from the addition of jalapeño or chili pepper. A refreshing and flavorful drink, margaritas are perfect for a night out with friends or a relaxing afternoon by the pool.
