Equipment Needed To Make A Margarita

The only tool you’ll need to make this cocktail:

Cocktail shaker

Strainer 

I have this fantastic glass cocktail shaker from Amazon. If you don’t have a cocktail shaker, you can use a mason jar with a lid. 

If you want to make more of a frozen margarita then you will need a blender to make shaved ice.

Use the shaved ice in your glass instead of ice cubes for step 2 below.
