This is one of our favourite and best-selling margaritas. As with all cocktails, make sure you shake the ingredients over plenty of ice – you don’t want the drink to be diluted. And don’t forget to attach the lid properly. Many a barman at work has been caught out by a loose lid when trying to do a Tom Cruise impression from Cocktail. The aim is to shake vigorously until the contents of the shaker are combined and ice-cold, not to wreak havoc in your kitchen.

30ml fresh lime juice
20ml agave (sugar) syrup

Shake all the ingredients over ice and pour into the tumblers.
