Ingredients Needed


If you have the right ingredients, a margarita on the rocks is a fairly easy cocktail. The ingredients needed for a margarita on the rocks are pretty straightforward. They include:

How to Make a Margarita on the Rocks 


Once you have gathered all of your ingredients, it is time to mix.


Step One: Rim the Glass With Salt


You can use any glass you want, but there is a certain allure to drinking from a glass designed for margaritas.


On an empty plate, spread a layer of salt. We prefer Himalayan pink salt, but you can use regular table salt if you prefer. Next, cut a slice of lime and gently rub it around the rim of the glass. Be sure to coat the entire glass rim to help the salt stick better. Once you have done this, place the glass upside down on the layer of salt and gently turn it clockwise until it’s coated to your liking. 


Step Two: Mix It Up


Remember that shaker on your bar that you’ve always wanted to try out? That time has come.


Fill the shaker with ice. Next, you will want to add 1.5 to two ounces of your favorite tequila. Finally, pour in your favorite margarita mix from Skinny Mixes. 


Shake everything together by shaking that shaker like a pro for about fifteen to twenty seconds—and voilà, you are done!


Step Three: Pour It Over Ice


Fill your salt-rimmed glass with ice. Once you’ve done that, go ahead and strain the margarita mix out of the shaker and over the ice in the glass. Be sure to leave some room at the top for any garnish you wish to add.


Step Four: Add a Garnish


What kind of garnish are we thinking about? A cut slice of lime and a sprig of mint will do wonders for your margarita’s visual representation!


Step Five: Serve and Enjoy 


Once your margarita is over ice and garnished, you are ready to enjoy it. Sip on it alone or share it with a friend.
