  • Summary

    A good margarita depends on the quality of its ingredients; always use the best tequila you can find. You'll get excellent results using a citrus reamer, a small, fluted cylindrical wooden tool, to extract every last drop of juice from the limes.

    Ingredients

    • 1 lime, cut into wedges
    • Coarse salt
    • Ice cubes
    • 1 1/4 cups freshly squeezed lime juice
    • 1 cup best-quality white tequila
    • 1/3 cup Cointreau
    • 1/3 cup sugar, plus more if desired
