The Best Italian Margaritas

I first experienced these Italian Margaritas at one of my best friends' bachelorette party and have been obsessed with them ever since. Zesty Aperol adds the perfect spin on this delicious twist on the classic margarita!


  • 2oz Reposado tequila
  • 1oz Aperol
  • 1oz Fresh lime juice
  • 1/2oz Triple sec or Grand Marnier
  • 1/2oz Simple syrup


  1. If you want to salt the rim of the glass, simply add a smidge of simple syrup to a small plate and have some coarse salt ready in a small plate next to it. Dip rim into the simple syrup to coat the rim. Then dip rim into the salt. Shake off excess salt and you are ready to pour in your Italian margarita!
  2. Add all of your ingredients to a cocktail shaker and add lots of ice cubes. Shake vigorously for approximately thirty seconds, until the mixture is very cold. Pour into a chilled cocktail glass or margarita glasses and enjoy!
