How to Make the Perfect Margarita

Who doesn't love a margarita?


Margs, margaritas... whatever you call them, we love them! They are perfectly refreshing and so easy to make. 

The below recipe is super quick and easy to whip together, so you'll be chilling with a drink in your hand in no time. 

If you don't fancy making your own margaritas, there are some seriously good spots for margaritas all over the country. In Dublin, we particularly like Xico's, 777 and the latest bar to open in Dublin, The Well, on St Stephen's Green. We've tried and tested, so you can believe us.
