This is supposedly the Classic Margarita...
2 ounces silver tequila
1 ounce Cointreau (orange liqueur)
1 ounce lime juice
Glass Type: cocktail glass
Shake well with cracked ice, then strain into a chilled cocktail glass that has had its rim rubbed with lime juice and dipped in coarse salt.
A note on the tequila: It should be 100 percent agave, the plant from which the stuff is traditionally made. Save the great golden aņejos for sipping.
A note on the Cointreau: It yields results clearly superior to triple sec, most brands of which are marred by an unpleasant chemical aftertaste.
