Frozen or on the rocks? Salt or no salt? However you order them, margaritas rule.

Invented sometime in the 1930s or ’40s (depending upon whose story you believe), a basic margarita should always be simple and easy to replicate, says Derrick Turner, brand advocate for 1800 Tequila. You just need four ingredients: tequila, lime juice, something orange flavored (alcohol, juice, or bitters), and a sweetener. From there, the variations you can create are infinite.

To make each drink:

Prep the glass

To rim a glass with salt, sugar, or spices, rub a wedge of lime around the lip of the glass, then dip to coat.

For drinks on the rocks

  1. First muddle any fresh ingredients like watermelon or berries in the bottom of your shaker.
  2. Then fill the shaker halfway with ice.
  3. Pour in all remaining ingredients, cover, and shake well.
  4. Strain and pour into an ice-filled glass.

For blended drinks

  1. Add all ingredients to a blender with approximately 1 cup of ice cubes.
  2. Process in blender until ice is fully chopped and the drink texture is smooth and creamy.
  3. Serve.
