Cloyingly sweet margarita mixes have given this drink a bad name. A well-made version is a fresh mix of lime juice and tequila, with a hint of sweetener:
- 2 oz silver tequila
- 1 oz Cointreau
- 1 oz lime juice
- Salt for the rim
Since this recipe includes fresh juice, it should be shaken. Serve over ice in a glass with a salted rim.
