Best "On the Rocks" Margarita Recipe

Anyone else battling the heat these days?

Well, my favorite way to battle the heat, especially on a Friday night is to make a margarita. This 4th of July weekend is the best time to do it too! While I usually have blended margaritas, I recently discovered a brand of tequila that makes for a fantastic "on the rocks" margarita recipe.

Ladies and gentleman, I bring you - Camarena Tequila!

The reason I like this tequila is that it doesn't slap you in the face like the regular brand (I usually buy Jose Cuervo Tequila Gold). It's lighter and a sweeter than what I usually drink. It made for a fantastic "on the rocks" recipe as you could really enjoy your drink without being whopped on the head. jI don't recommend making blended margaritas with this brand, because it may get lost in flavor. But over ice it's just divine!  

I got the chance to try out this tequila because of the Camarena Tipple Tool Box, which features a custom shaker, 1 oz X 2 oz jigger, a citrus squeezer, a muddler, a bottle of camerena tequila, and cocktail booklet.

This is actually a fantastic gift to give to someone (or one for yourself), especially if it's a housewarming party, a summer party, or a birthday. I loved the lemon/citrus squeezer (my first!!), by the way.

Now, for my recipe!

Camarena "On the Rocks" Margarita

1 1/2 oz of Camarena Tequila
3/4 oz of lime juice
3/4 oz of Triple Sec

If you use salt, rim the edges of the glass with lemon and dip into the container of margarita salt. 

Put all ingredients into the shaker. Put ice in shaker. Shake it.

Put ice in glass. Drain shaker into glass.

Voila! You have yourself a Camarena Margarita on the rocks!

And now for the best part! I get to giveaway this tequila toolkit to one of my readers! Contest ends July 15th.

Disclaimer: I received a complimentary box of the Camarena  Tequila toolkit in exchange for my honest review.


  1. I don't drink since my body doesn't break down alcohol. But I shared this.

    Hugs and chocolate,

  2. I'm not a huge tequila fan (bourbon is by far my favorite), though the girlfriend is. I entered the contest, as it looks like this could be a good gift. The recipe doesn't sound too bad though.

  3. I bought the premixed bottles to blend some Mojitos and Margarita's this holiday weekend. Just add ice! lol

  4. Margaritas and a nice fruity sangria

    My fav would probably be beer or Margaritas

  6. Homemade strawberry margaritas (with freshly pureed strawberry)! Or, if I'm feeling lazy, a light beer. ;)

  7. strawberry and/or mango margaritas with fresh fruit

  8. I like to have long island ice teas.

  9. My fav is diet coke. My husbands is mojitos

  10. I love a nice cold beer but never turn down a mimosa or a cool sangria either!
