Who Has the Better Margarita Recipe: Matthew McConaughey or Jimmy Buffett?


When it comes to margaritas, believe it or not, there is such a thing as a bad one. Granted, it’s hard to mess up a classic marg with basic ingredients, but when you try to make it your own and give it a little extra flair, things can go wrong. 

The folks over at Delish put Matthew McConaughey and Jimmy Buffett’s margarita recipes up to the test to see whose was best. Matthew’s was made with Guy Fieri while Jimmy uses his very own tequila brand to make his. Ultimately, Jimmy’s took home the win because people were thrown off by Matthew’s use of cranberry juice— but, to each their own!

Matthew McConaughey’s Margarita Ingredients:
