This Orange Bitters Agave Margarita depends on a great tequila. Add some agave, lime juice and orange bitters and you have a very special margarita. And also a very potent one.



3 oz silver agave tequila

1 oz agave

34 drops of orange bitters

Juice of 1 1/2 limes freshly squeezed


  1. Fill a margarita glass with ice and water to chill.
  2. Combine lime juice, tequila, agave syrup, and orange bitters in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake 40 times vigorously. (Really.)
  3. Empty ice filled glass. Rub a slice of lime along the rim of the glass. Dip rim of glass into a plate of kosher salt. Strain contents of shaker into glass.
  4. Sip slowly and enjoy!


This makes one strong and great drink!
