While filming a television series in Perth, we found ourselves discussing the merits of good tequila. Levon, one of the crew, boasted that he had, and I quote, ‘the best margarita recipe in the world’. Well, Levon, it’s pretty damned good, so I have paid it homage by including it here for all to try. I think I prefer mine shaken over ice and strained but you can try it as you like — frozen or just over ice, it’s bloody good.

This mix can make as much or as little as you like. It’s pretty straightforward: for two drinks, use 60 ml of alcohol and then do the maths. If you want a frozen margarita, fill the glasses with ice to measure, then blitz the ice with the booze in a blender and pour it back into the glasses. For a chilled drink, just shake the alcohol with the ice and strain it back into the glasses.
