This classic cocktail is a perfect summer drink and a tropical favourite. The perfect margarita recipe is a beautiful thing and I’ve got you covered here with this recipe! Like many classics, there’s not really much to drink. Although there are many different Margaritas that use sweeteners, flavors, and tricks, the Classic Margarita comes across as a fairly simple drink.
