- 1 1⁄2ounces tequila
- 1ounce lime juice
- 3⁄4ounce triple sec
- 5ice cubes
- lime wedge
- coarse salt
Moisten rim of margarita glass or martini glass with fresh lime juice.
Hold glass inverted and sprinkle salt around the exterior of the glass, over the lime juice (this helps keep salt from getting in the drink).
Squeeze a little lime juice into the glass and drop the lime wedge in.
Add ice cubes to a cocktail shaker, and top with tequila, lime juice, and triple sec.
Cover with lid and shake vigorously.
Pour into prepared glass and serve.
