Tasting Notes

A Vodka Margarita is a cool, crisp drink. It tastes a bit sour from the lime, sweet from the syrup, and has a smooth vodka flavor that mixes in perfectly. It’s like a little party in your mouth with every sip.

Equipment and Glassware

To make a Vodka Margarita, you’ll need a shaker to mix everything up really well. A strainer is also handy to pour it out neatly. As for the glass, we go with a chilled margarita glass. Sometimes, we even salt the rim to make it look fancy and add a bit of extra flavor.

Ingredients

  • 2 oz vodka
  • 1 oz lime juice
  • 1/2 oz triple sec
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • Salt for the rim (optional)
  • Lime wedge for garnish

Instructions

  1. First, if you want a salted rim, rub a lime wedge around the edge of the glass and dip it in salt.
  2. Fill your shaker with ice, vodka, lime juice, triple sec, and simple syrup.
  3. Shake it like you’re dancing to your favorite song until it’s really cold.
  4. Strain it into your prepared glass.
  5. Add a lime wedge on the side for that extra touch.
