Whether you are celebrating your birthday or just having a get-together with friends, these alcoholic beverages will never disappoint you. There are numerous popular cocktails around the world, including martinis, mojitos, Manhattans, old-fashioneds, and negronis, as well as margaritas. 

The classic margarita consists of tequila, triple sec, and lime juice. Some of its recipes also include simple syrup and are mostly served with salt on the rim of the glass. The iconic margarita cocktail was created by Santos Cruz, a bartender from Texas, in 1948. Since then, there have been numerous variations of margaritas popular across the globe. 

Here are some of the famous variations of margarita you must try:

Frozen Margarita

A frozen margarita is made by combining all the basic ingredients with ice. You can also upgrade it by making it fruitier, and what could be better than strawberries? In a blender, mix 16 ounces of strawberries with tequila, lime juice, honey, and triple sec, and blend until smooth. Prepare your glasses with sugar or salt-coated rims, pour, and enjoy.

The Mojitarita 

This is a fantastic amalgamation of the two classics, the margarita and the mojito. In a cocktail shaker, combine 1 cup mint leaves, 1/2 cup lime juice, and 2 tablespoons sugar with 8 ounces of tequila and shake with crushed ice. Strain into cocktail glasses and top with soda water. You can also garnish it with lime wheels as well.

Watermelon Margarita 

This refreshing margarita is made with the flavour of watermelon. Combine 4 cups of pureed watermelon with tequila, triple sec, lime juice, and honey. Blend it properly, garnish the rim of the glass with salt, and pour the cocktail. You can also add some chopped mint leaves.

Grapefruit Margarita 

This twist to your regular margarita is perfect if you are planning to surprise your taste buds. Combine tequila, grapefruit juice, lime juice, and salt in a cocktail shaker and shake hard with ice. Fill a rocks glass halfway with ice and add a rosemary sprig on top.

Mint Margarita 

A mint margarita is made with a gentle touch of fresh mint or basil. Prepare the glass by running a lime wedge around the rim and filling it with crushed ice. In the bottom of a pitcher, muddle 3/4 cup tequila, 3/4 cup lime juice, 1/4 cup agave syrup, and mint sprigs with the handle of a wooden spoon. Strain it into the glass and garnish with a mint sprig.
