A classic Margarita that’s the perfect mix of tart lime, earthy tequila, and bright orange from the Cointreau.
- 2 oz tequila (I used a Don Julio Reposado for a more rich flavor then blanco)
- 1 oz fresh lime juice
- 1/2 oz Cointreau
- 1/2 oz oz simple syrup
- course sea salt or kosher salt for rim OR a few pinches salt in the shaker
- lime wheel, garnish
Place salt on the plate. Run a lime wedge around the rim of a rocks glass. Rim it on a plate of salt to coat. Add all of the other ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake. Strain into a glass with ice. Garnish with lime wheel.
