The "Are Your Sure This is a Margarita?" Recipe

Inspired by the, ahem, very imaginative "margarita" an extremely young Kieran Culkin mixes up for Freddy Prinze Junior in the '90's teen rom com She's All That.

Deliver Ingredients


  • 4 Ounces light rum
  • ½ Cup orange juice
  • 4 Ounces cranberry-lime simple syrup (recipe linked in the instructions below)
  • club soda


Pour the rum, orange juice, and cranberry-lime simple syrup into a cocktail shaker filled partway with ice, and shake until well integrated. Pour into chilled glass and top with club soda.

Margarita Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Margarita Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
