Put Yourself on Island Time When You Mix Up This Famous Margarita Recipe

Jimmy Buffett and margaritas are practically synonymous with one another. Thanks to the musician’s hit song, “Margaritaville,” it seems nearly impossible to sip one of these tart, tequila-laced cocktails without immediately remembering the tune. The singer even has his own line of Margaritaville tequila, in addition to a chain of resorts and restaurants bearing the same name. Needless to say, Buffett knows a thing or two about a good margarita!

So, with the first day of spring just days away, now seems like an appropriate time to perfect your at-home margarita by following along to this simple recipe, which Jimmy Buffett himself has given the stamp of approval.


• 1 oz. Margaritaville Tequila Gold
• 1/2 oz. Margaritaville Tequila Silver
• 1/2 oz. triple sec
• 1/2 oz. orange curaçao
• 1/2 oz. lime juice

1. Rim a margarita glass with salt (optional).
2. Combine ingredients in a shaker filled with ice. Squeeze lime on top, then drop wedges in.
3. Cover, shake vigorously and pour.
4. Makes one Jimmy Buffett-style margarita. Cheers!
