Making the perfect margarita at your new apartment

Singin, shaking and sharing

So you are moving into your new apartment right here at Austin, and you are thrilled. The Pure Apartment Locating team wants you to feel that way after all this time touring and dreaming about the perfect place, you deserve it!

However, sometimes with all the leasing and hustle, you can forget one of the most important things: you need to capture this moment! Like truly make it unforgettable. And there’s no best way of capturing moments than sharing them with the ones you loved.

Everything that makes you happy deserves to be showed off. You call all your friends, they are excited, they are even bringing people over. Now the question is, what are you going to make? 

Sharing sounds like shaking, and there’s one thing that goes along really well with these two words. We are talking about Margaritas!

PS: if you want to invite your leasing agent, that’s awesome too ;)


The perfect Margarita recipe

Margaritas are a denial of the belief that everting tasty it’s hard labor. They are soooo simple to make that you won’t believe it.


For making a glass of it, you will need these basic ingredients:

  • 2 ounces of white Tequila. But, it can vary if you would like your drink softer.

  • 1 oz of lime juice. It could be the juice of 1 whole lime.

  • ½ ounce triple sec, preferably Cointreau.

Optional: they look really cute in pictures and elevate the taste of your drink.

  • Salt for the rim.

  • Lime wedge, for garnish.



Now, follow these simple steps.


First, grab some ice and almost fill out your cocktail shaker with them. But don’t be as Rose in the Titanic, and left some space for serving your main ingredients. Then, add the tequila, lime juice, and triple sec.

2. Shaking 

Cover your cocktail shaker and let all your ingredients become really close friends, by shake – shake - shaking it like a polaroid picture.

3. Serving 

First, grab a highball or footed glass and salt the rim, if you like to taste it in that way. Then, pour your drink with some ice and garnish it with a wedge of lime.

4. Sharing

Now, reunite all your friends. We want to make a toast for you:

“May you live whenever you like,

And have all you like whenever you live."

Cheers 😊
