Thielen Margarita

This is how a Thielen makes a Margarita. And yes, we do ask for salt on the glass.


  • 2 oz. blanco tequila

  • 1 oz. Cointreau

  • 3/4 oz. Lime Juice

  • Agave nectar (to taste)

  • Lime wedges

  • Kosher salt


  • Chill a rocks glass or a double rocks glass

  • Put salt on a small plate (or a lid to a deli container works great)

  • Take a lime wedge and cut a slit into the flesh, halfway to the rind

  • Put the rim of the glass in the slit and run the lime along the whole length

  • Turn glass upside down on the salt plate (lid) to coat the top of the glass

  • Combine tequila, Cointreau, lime juice and agave nectar into shaker filled with ice.

  • Shake for 30 seconds.

  • Serve in chilled salted glass with the lime wedge on the rim.
