Prep Time10 mins


  • 1 cup Good Tequila (we love LALO tequila) you can use less tequila if you don't want it as strong
  • 1/4 cup cointreau
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 cup of Simple Syrup
  • 1 teaspoon egg whites fresh or out of the carton is fine!
  • Tajin or salt, for the rim
  • Lime wedges, for serving


  • Combine the tequila, Cointreau, lime juice, simple syrup, and egg white in a blender. Blend until frothy.
  • Pour some salt or tajin on a small plate. Cut a slit in the lime wedge and rub it along the rim of a glass. Roll the edge of the glass in the salt or Tajín to coat the rim. Carefully fill with ice and pour in the margarita.
  • Enjoy!


Clayton says he never stores his batch of margaritas in the fridge, as they tend to get tart in the fridge. He leaves on the counter while people serve up their own glasses.
For serving a large crowd, we usually just omit the egg white and make in a big dispenser.
