People have very strong opinions on what should be in a margarita. I remember when our editor Faith Durand suggested a couple years ago that you shouldn’t be adding orange liqueur to your margarita, and the comments section got pretty ugly. Yes, traditional margarita recipes generally just have three things: tequila, triple sec, and lime. But don’t let the haters get in the way of making your version of the classic.
If you’re ready to switch things up a little this summer, I have just the drink for you. I’ve found the most popular margarita recipe on Pinterest, and it’s definitely not traditional.
