The Patron tequila margarita is a classic for a reason. For this recipe, you’ll need Cointreau or Triple Sec, limes, and (of course) Patron tequila. Take one ounce of Cointreau or Triple Sec, one ounce of lime juice, and two ounces of tequila. Place in a shaker with ice and shake for several seconds.
Run a lime wedge over the edge of your glass when top with kosher or flakey sea salt. Pour in your margarita with the remaining ice and garnish with a lime wedge.

Salt Air Margarita
This margarita variant has a unique, fluffy texture that your guests will just love. Start with the classic Patron margarita recipe above. Then combine four ounces of filtered water, two ounces of lime juice, 1.5 ounces of Sucro (an emulsifier), and a half teaspoon of salt.
Blend the toppings on high until you notice bubbles. Then, spoon the mixture over your margarita for a heavenly and slightly salty topping.
Of all the Patron tequila cocktails listed in this article, this one may be the healthiest. Tamarind is known to have significant anti-inflammatory properties. It also happens to blend very well with tequila.
Start with a cup of tamarind. You’ll need to remove any seeds from the pods by boiling the mix of pulp and seeds.
Add the pulp to water and cook over medium heat. Once the liquid begins to simmer, remove it from the heat.
As the pulp soaks, it was separate from the seeds. Strain through a mesh and cool.
Once your tamarind puree is ready, you can add it to your favorite Patron cocktail for a unique flavor profile. Tamarind also leaves a rich and opaque color that makes this drink a delight for both the eyes and palate.
For this fun recipe, you’ll need jalapeno-infused tequila. Simply slice jalapenos (or your favorite spicy pepper), place in your favorite tequila bottle, and wait 24 hours. Take one handful of sliced cucumbers, a half-cup of crushed ice, and muddle both ingredients in a sturdy glass.
Pour the mixture into a cocktail shaker, add an ounce of tequila, the juice of two limes, and a pinch of sugar. Then shake and serve!
The Moon Safari

You’ll want to find super fresh pineapple juice. Combine two ounces of the juice with two ounces of tequila (preferably blanco), a half-ounce of fresh lime juice, and a sprig of tarragon.
Add ice and shake in a shaker. Strain and garnish with a pineapple spear and a small sprig of tarragon.
Blood Orange Margarita
Yet another “twist” on the margarita. You’ll want to plan ahead by finding fresh blood orange juice. Combine 1.5 ounces of tequila, one-ounce blood orange juice, one-ounce lime juice, half an ounce of simple syrup, and a dash of Triple Sec. Combine in a shaker with ice and shaker vigorously.
Then strain over your favorite cocktail glass and garnish with a twisted blood orange peel. The Blood Orange Margarita has a lovely reddish-orange hue to it that makes for great photos.
