This Casamigos Margarita Recipe is one of my favorites as the Reposado Tequila adds so much flavor making it a delicious drink any time of the year. The key to this delicious margarita is the type of tequila. Casamigos Tequila is the smoothest tequila out there and you only need 3 ingredients to make this margarita! You are going to love this margarita cocktail and it might even make you a tequila fan if you aren’t already one.
Casamigos, also known as “House of Friends”, was created by Actor, George Clooney and his long-time friends Rande Gerber and Mike Meldman. Their vision was to make the best-tasting and smoothest tequila that didn’t have to be covered up with salt or lime. They worked with a master distiller in Jalisco, Mexico for years, and held many blind tastings until they had got the perfect tequila. They have 4 different tequilas: Blanco, Reposado, Anejo, and Mezcal.
For our house margarita recipe, we love and use Casamigos Reposado to make the best tasting classic Margarita. Their Reposado has a deep golden color and has notes of tropical fruits and oak with a touch of sweetness. It’s a winner in our book.
In a traditional Classic Margarita, there are 3 key ingredients to it: tequila, triple sec, and lime juice. In our classic margarita, we skip the triple sec and add fresh-made simple syrup. If you want to make this a Casamigos skinny margarita, add agave nectar in its place.
We have tried both Casamigos Blanco Tequila and Añejo Tequila and do enjoy them in this margarita recipe too. They of course will have a different flavor. Blanco Margaritas won’t have a deep complex flavor like Reposado Margaritas, and Añejo Margaritas have even a more robust flavor than both Blanco and Reposado.
We like to use Blanco Tequila for Margaritas that have fresh fruit like watermelon or mango. We used Tequila Blanco over Reposado because in our opinion Reposado can take away that fresh fruity flavor or sometimes over enhances the fruit.
Our go-to margarita for Añejo Tequila is Ginger Margaritas or Strawberry Margaritas. Añejo Tequila has vanilla notes to it, which pair very nicely with strawberries and ginger.
We have tested all types of sugar and we have found that Cane Sugar or Turbinado Sugar is the best. These 2 sugars are minimally processed compared to other sugars like granulated or caster sugars; therefore, they both retain more of the plant’s flavor and natural molasses, which makes a very delicious simple syrup for margaritas.
If you are making a margarita right away, place the simple syrup in the freezer for about 10 minutes to cool. Once made, store homemade simple syrup in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.
This Casamigos Tequila Reposado Margarita Recipe is simple to make, very balanced, tangy, sweet, and salty! It’s a delicious margarita for any time of the year! We hope you enjoy our margarita recipe! ♡
Besides sipping on it neat, Casamigos is great tequila to use in several tequila cocktails. Here are some of our favorites:
