The El Mex Margarita

We're known for many things at El Mex, but our signature Margarita slush is the perfect drink to compliment your burrito. Although our slushes don't contain alcohol, we thought we would share our favourite recipe for when you're in the mood for a traditional Mex drink!

Looking to create the perfect summer drink? It goes down a treat at a BBQ or a girls night in!


  • 2 oz tequila

  • 1 oz freshly squeezed lime juice

  • 1 oz triple sec or Cointreau

  • 1/2 oz simple syrup (optional)

  • Salt for rimming the glass

  • Ice

  • Lime wedge for garnish


  1. Rim the edge of a glass with salt by rubbing a lime wedge around the rim, then dipping it in salt.

  2. Fill the glass with ice.

  3. In a cocktail shaker, combine tequila, lime juice, triple sec, and simple syrup (if using). Add ice and shake well.

  4. Strain the mixture into the salt-rimmed glass filled with ice.

  5. Garnish with a lime wedge and enjoy your homemade margarita!

Note: If you prefer your margarita frozen, blend the ingredients with ice in a blender until smooth and serve in a salt-rimmed glass.
