Signature cocktails are a huge trend in weddings. And while most signature cocktails are seasonal and appropriately themed, who says they have to be? We've served margarita's for a fall wedding!

Over the next week, we will give you some exciting and refreshing ideas for signature cocktails and other summery fun details for your big day! To beat this heat and tickle your taste buds, how about this mouthwatering Ginger Lime Margarita featured on Design Sponge?

Here’s what you will need.

> juice of 1 lime

> juice of ½ orange

> juice of ½ Meyer lemon

> 2 ounces tequila

> 1 ounce Cointreau

> 3” stems of ginger (more if desired)

> 1 tablespoon sugar

And for the garnish you'll need:

Are you ready to make this glorious margarita? Here’s what you need to do.

1. Squeeze all juice into a glass or small pitcher.

2. Add tequila, Cointreau and sugar.

3. Stir well.

4. Zest fresh ginger over the glass or pitcher (omit or add more to taste).

5. Strain the mixture with a fine sieve into another cup or a pitcher full of ice.

6. To garnish, rub lime wedge along the rim of your glass and dip it into the graham cracker sugar mixture. Sprinkle sugared lime zest on a lime wedge and add to the glass rim.
