What is a margarita recipe?

The margarita, a classic frozen cocktail composed of tequila, lime juice and simple syrup, has its roots in Mexico. Today, it's a national favorite, found in restaurants and at home across the country. Typical margarita recipes call for triple sec, a sweet liqueur. Triple sec can be substituted with another liqueur that has a similar flavor profile. Some margarita recipes also call for Cointreau, which has a more citrusy flavor than triple sec. If you didn't know already, you can substitute Triple Sec for Cointreau in most recipes. It will give you a very similar taste.
