This easy banana margarita is the perfect summer drink. Made with homemade banana syrup, using simple & easy to find ingredients. Served on the rocks with a salt or sugar rim.


  • Banana Syrup:
  • Banana Margarita:
    • 1 ½ oz banana syrup
    • 1 oz tequila
    • ½ oz lime juice, freshly squeezed
    • ½ tbsp Cointreau



  • You can use store bought banana syrup instead, but it may not taste as authentic. 
  • Don’t boil the syrup. Don’t let the syrup boil or it will end up too thick. Adjust the temperature as needed.
  • Storing the syrup: This recipe will make enough syrup to make 3-4 margaritas. Store leftover syrup in an airtight container or jar in the fridge for up to a week.
  • Salt or sugar the rim. Run a lime wedge along the edge of the margarita glass and dip it in either salt or sugar, depending on your preference.
