summer is for margaritas
2 oz silver tequila
1 oz premium Cointreau
1/2 oz fresh squeezed lime juice
coarse kosher salt
Place a thin layer of salt onto a small plate. Rub the rim of a cocktail glass with lime juice. Holding the stem of the glass, rotate the rim in salt. Its best if the salt is only on the outside of the glass. Fill a cocktail shaker half full with ice. Place all ingredients in a shaker. Shake well. Strain into the glass, garnish with lime wedges if you like, and serve.
