Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces blanco or reposado tequila
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup
  • 3/4 ounce lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce triple sec or Cointreau

Instructions

  1. For the salted rim, take a lime wedge and coat the rim of a margarita glass or double old fashioned glass. Dip in margarita salt, rotating until coated.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with a cup of ice. Shake vigorously and pour straight into a chilled glass with the (now crushed) ice from the shaker. Garnish with a lime wheel.


Notes

You can make these in a giant pitcher but the perfect margarita is shaken.
