The Margarita. It’s the drink that puts the "happy" in happy hour. A beguiling elixir of tequila, citrus, and sweetness that’s guaranteed to go down easy—and put a smile on your face.

The Classic Margarita—perhaps named after Margarita Sames, or maybe Margarete, a descendent of Ponce de Leon, but do we really care?—is a delectable blend of tequila, simple syrup, Cointreau, and lime and lemon juices. But as cocktail designer extraordinaire Kim Haasarud proves in this fantastic little guide, the Classic is just the starting point for margarita bliss. Open the book, and you’ll discover 101 heavenly margarita recipes—one for every season, every mood, and every occasion.

All your favorite margarita variations are here. You can chill out with a frozen Strawberry Margarita. Get romantic with an exotic Passionfruit Margarita. Or "berry" yourself in the fruity delights of a delicious Raspberry Margarita. But Haasarud also gives you lots of new and exciting margarita choices. You can take a cocktail party to new heights with the sophisticated Sake Margarita. Tame fiery foods with the refreshing Sweet Ginger Margarita. Or finish off a meal with a divine Hazelnut Margarita or an espresso-infused Margarita du Café.

So invite some friends, get out your shaker, and ready the glasses. With a little help from this book, you’ll be in Margaritaville in no time.

I recently purchased this book for my husband's birthday. He loves margaritas but has always made them from mixes (probably because he's never found the perfect recipe). This book not only has a great recipe for a classic margarita, but 101 covers a lot of other delicious ideas! The layout of the book makes it really easy to find the recipes and to distinguish between them. There are only 1-2 recipes per page so it's not overcrowded, and the photographs that accompany many of the drinks are bright and vibrant and really make you want to whip up a batch! Another helpful addition is that next to each recipe there is an illustration of a salt shaker, either with a check mark (meaning okay to use salt) or with an X through it (meaning no salt). This way you won't accidently ruin sweet margaritas. We just got the book so we haven't tried anything other than the Classic Margarita, but we're excited to try such drinks as the "Lemon-Basil" Margarita", the "Mojita Rita", the "Strawberry Daiquirita" and the "Avocado-Cilantro Margarita", just to name a few!
