Instructions

  1. Toss salt on a small plate. Rub the rims of four margarita glasses with the lime wedge and dip each glass in the salt mixture. Set glasses aside.

Notes

You can find a number of good quality tequila brands, just be sure to look for one that is made with 100% agave. For this recipe you also want to use blanco/ silver tequila. Here are a few of my favorite brands: 

  • 123 Certified Organic Tequila Blanco
  • Patron Blanco/ Silver
  • Casamigos Tequila Blanco
