A margarita consists of tequila, orange liqueur (Cointreau), and lime juice often served with salt on the rim of the glass. It can be served shaken with ice (on the rocks), blended with ice (frozen margarita), or without ice (straight up) and it is traditionally served in a margarita glass – your classic cocktail glass or champagne coupe (although it has become acceptable to serve a margarita in wine, tumbler or pint glasses).
