How to Make a Margarita

San Francisco Tequila

How to Cocktail: Margarita

A slight twist on the classic Margarita, this tequila cocktail was invented at Tommy’s Mexican Restaurant in San Francisco. Bartender Jacques Bezuidenhout shows you how to make a Margarita.


  • 2 oz Partida blanco tequila
  • 1 oz fresh lime juice
  • 1 oz agave syrup  (one part agave nectar, one part water)

Garnish: Lime wheel
Glass: Cocktail, Margarita or Old Fashioned

Add all the ingredients to a shaker and fill with ice. Shake, and strain into a chilled Margarita or cocktail glass, or an Old Fashioned glass filled with fresh ice. Garnish with a lime wheel.
