Ingredients

  • Kosher salt or coarsely ground sea salt
  • 2 Ounces silver tequila
  • 1 1/2 Ounce (about 1½ small limes) fresh lime juice
  • 1 Ounce (about ½ of a medium orange) fresh orange juice
  • 1 Teaspoon light agave nectar
  • 1 lime wedge or round, for garnish

Directions

To prepare glass, slice off a small piece of lime and run the wet edge of the slice along half of the rim of your glass. Dip the top of the glass into a plate dusted with salt at a 45-degree angle and roll it from side to side to coat the rim. Add ice cubes to your glass and set it aside.

Use a juicer to extract the juice of about 1 ½ small limes and ½ of an orange. Fill a small cocktail shaker with ice. Pour in the tequila, freshly squeezed lime and orange juice, and agave nectar. Put on the lid and shake for 30 seconds. Strain the liquid into your glass and garnish with a slice of lime.

Margarita Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Margarita Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
