According to Cointreau, this is the original recipe as created by Margarita Sames, a Texas socialite, in 1948

1 part Cointreau liqueur
2 parts tequila
Fresh lime juice

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the Cointreau, tequila and fresh lime juice.

Strain into a Margarita glass, with or without salt, and serve.

To rim a Margarita glass with salt:

Pour lime juice OR Cointreau OR water into a wide shallow bowl. Pour coarse salt onto a plate and level. Dip the rim of a Margarita glass into the lime juice [or Cointreau or water, if using]; shake off excess. Set the rim of the glass in the salt and press, rotating the rim around in the salt depending on how much salt you want on the rim.

Jello Shots

10 oz vodka
2 (3 oz) packages of Jello (your favorite flavour)
2 cups boiling water
1 cup cold water
Bring water to a boil and remove from heat. Dissolve the packages of Jello in 2 cups boiling water, stirring for at least 2 minutes, until gelatin is dissolved. Stir in ice-cold water and vodka. Pour mixture into shot glasses or paper cups. Let shots set in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours.

For margaritas, just buy a mix to add tequila to....I suggest Margaritaville. Cuz I like it. And they make just the mix that doesn't have any booze in it that way you/your guests can add how ever much they want....just have a blender on hand.

I use the same recipe as Tom.

Avoid margarita mixes. They're usually nothing but chemicals and corn syrup, plus they taste like cheap crap.

Woo Woo its a shot of vodka peach schnappps and cranberry juice
