  • 1tsplight agave nectar
  • 1lime wedge,or round, to garnish


  1. Pour a layer of salt onto a small plate (preferably one just slightly larger than the top of your margarita glass). Slice off a small piece of lime, and run the wet edge of the slice along half of the rim of your glass.

  2. Dip the top of the glass into the salt at a 45-degree angle and roll it from side to side to catch the salt. Add ice cubes to your glass and set it aside.

  4. Strain the liquid into your glass and garnish with a lime wedge.

Recipe Notes

If you want to make a pitcher of margaritas or around 10 drinks (about 45 ounces, or 5½ cups), combine 2½ cups silver tequila, 1¾ cup fresh lime juice (around 15 limes), 1¼ cup fresh orange juice (about 5 medium oranges), and 3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon light agave nectar. Mix well, and add ice. Don’t forget to garnish your rims with lime rounds and coarse salt.
