Ingredients needed to make a Margarita

2 oz Gold Tequila
1 oz Triple Sec
3 oz lime juice
1 oz Simple Syrup
Coarse Salt

Margarita Cocktail Recipe Directions

Using a trick I learned on SMD, I rimmed the glass with Triple Sec nstead of Lime Juice. (Salt holds better) In a shaker with a few ice cubes pour tequila, triple sec, lime juice, and simple syrup. Shake vigorously. Pour over ice and garnish with a lime wedge.

MixMaster's Notes

I'm starting Cinco De Mayo a bit early.

No cointreau or triple sec! I like this, this is a minimalist drink, and the use of simple syrup is inspired. I have to try. What tequila did you use? Given the minimalism, I'd think something more high end than gold (unless it is a reposado or even an anejeo) would be tremendous.
