At one time, margaritas were considered only a summertime drink.
However, these delicious adult beverages are perfect for any time of the year. Today, you don’t have to settle for the same flavors either.
Many people are mixing and matching to create unique flavor combinations. Here are some of the most popular flavors of margaritas that are guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
It should come as no surprise that lime is the most popular margarita flavor. If you ask for a traditional or regular margarita at a restaurant, they’ll bring you a lime-flavored margarita.
Lime margaritas are very easy to make, but if you don’t have the right ingredients, you can purchase Rancho Gloria’s bottled lime margarita mix. You can also try their canned lime margarita cocktails or lime margarita popsicles.

- Freshly squeezed lime juice
- 1.5 ounces of silver tequila

- Salt for the rim
Pour the tequila, orange liqueur, and freshly squeezed lime juice into a cocktail shaker with ice. If you want, you can add in a splash of agave syrup for sweetness.
Shake the drink until it’s chilled and then pour into a cocktail glass filled with ice. If you want salt on the rim, wet it with a lime wedge then dip the rim in a plate of salt.
