There are many recipes to prepare margarita and you can use a huge variety of ingredients. In addition to the recipe I’m going to leave for you next, we suggest you prepare a margarita tequila, a frozen mango margarita or a simple cherry margarita.
1 1/2 oz of tequila
1/2 oz triple dry
2 oz. Of natural lemon juice
1 oz. Of natural lime juice
1 slice of lime
Cup for daisies
Pour all the ingredients into a Manhattan shaker and mix by shaking vigorously for 10 seconds. Strain and serve in a cup for margaritas. Garnish with a slice of lime and if desired, before decorating the rim with sugar or salt. Ready the margarita.
- Black Russian
The Black Russian is a simple but strong drink, with an exceptional texture. There is also his twin brother White Russian, which could perfectly be on this list and which is prepared in the same way but with cream.
1 3/4 oz of vodka
3/4 oz. Of coffee liqueur
Glass cup type glass
Serve all the ingredients in a rock glass type glass with lots of ice (on the rocks) and if you want, decorate with a red cherry. You can now enjoy the Black Russian, an easy but majestic drink.
- Gin and Tonic
Classic, simple, strong and fresh. The Gin and Tonic is a traditionally English cocktail, but it has many variations, preparing it will not take you more than 1 minute and is ideal for a spring afternoon.
2 oz of gin
4 oz of tonic water
1 slice of lemon
Old fashioned glass
Fill an old fashioned type glass with ice cubes, pour the gin and squeeze half a lemon inside. Complete with tonic water and add a slice of lemon to give more aroma and decorate. The Gin and Tonic is ready.
The whiskey is a very easy drink and is perfect for those who instead of drinking pure whiskey or rocks, prefer it in a cocktail that deceives them a bit.
1 oz whiskey
3 oz. Cola drink
Glass rock glass
In a glass rock glass, serve the whiskey on the rocks (with plenty of ice). Complete with cold cola drink and ready the whiskey! If you want, you can add a slice of lime or lemon to decorate.
The Bellini for its part is a typical drink of Italy. It is soft, delicate, sweet and of course, very easy to prepare.
2 oz. Peach smoothie
1/2 oz white wine
Pour the peach smoothie, white wine and some ice cubes in a blender or mixer. Mix at maximum power for 15 seconds, serve in a champagne glass and complete with champagne. If you want you decorate it with a slice of peach and that’s it.
- Dry Martini
Another simple but primordial classic in any bar. Avoid ice in its preparation and serve in a Martini glass.
70 ml extra dry Martini
140 ml of apple juice
1 slice of lemon
Fill a glass with three or four ice cubes and add the Martini. Complete the glass to the brim with the apple juice. You can decorate it with a slice of lemon and enjoy it!
- Tequila sunrise
Both tequila sunrise and tequila sundown are simple but spectacular cocktails, especially during the summer. A perfect cocktail to enjoy a sunset or sunrise on the beach.
2 oz tequila
4 oz. Of natural orange juice
3/4 oz. Of grenadine
Pour the tequila into a champagne glass filled with ice and add the grenadine. Complete with natural orange juice, stir gently once and decorate with a red cherry. It only remains to enjoy the sunrise with this drink in your hands.
- Cuba libre
Making a free Cuba does not take more than a few seconds and is always a good option. This cocktail is very popular in bars and parties in the Central American area.
1 1/2 oz of rum
1 oz. Of natural lemon juice
Old fashioned glass
In an old fashioned glass, with a lot of ice, pour the lemon juice and rum. Complete with coca cola and decorate with a slice of lime or lemon. This Cuba Libre is ready.
A good daiquiri, as in the case of margaritas, can be easily prepared with all kinds of ingredients.
1/2 cup of fruit pulp (choice to taste)
2 oz rum (you can also use vodka or gin)
1 oz. Of lemon juice
2 tablespoons of sugar
1 oz. Of liquor (as much as possible one of the same flavour as the selected fruits)
Cup for daisies
Pour all the ingredients in a blender or mixer and mix in maximum power to form a thick, smooth and homogeneous mixture. Serve in a cup for frozen margaritas and the daiquiri is ready!
- The Irish car bomb
The Irish car bomb is probably the easiest drink to prepare, the strongest and the most original, so we left it for the last place on the list.
1 glass of Black beer (Guiness)
1/2 shot of Irish whiskey
1/2 shot of Baileys Irish Cream
To a glass of black beer add a shot literally a half of Irish whiskey and one of Baileys. When drinking be careful with the shot.
These are the easiest drinks to prepare with which you can find.
