You may be wondering, what is the difference between a regular margarita and an Italian Margarita? The answer is simple….Italian liquor. Typical margaritas don’t have this added component and it makes all the difference. 

The Italian liquor in this recipe is Amaretto liquor, specifically Disaronno which is my favorite when it comes to Amaretto liquor.

How To Rim Your Italian Margarita

Believe it or not this is a bigger debate than I originally knew.

Some of the Italian Margarita Recipes recommend a mixture of salt and sugar, some recommend only salt, and others recommend only sugar. I believe that you know your pallet best and you should rim your drink accordingly!

Or, if you’re not a fan of a rimmed drink, this Italian beverage is tangy and delicious without any additions needed!
