The Original Margarita

August 30, 2006

Plate covered in rock salt
Shallow dish of lime juice
1 1/2 ounces of tequila
3/4 ounce of triple sec
6 ounces of sweet and sour mix
2 cups of ice (for frozen margaritas)
Dash of lime juice
Slice of lime or lemon

To rim the glass, dip the top of the wide-rimmed margarita glass into the lime juice and then dip into a plate of rock salt. For margaritas on the rocks, combine all the ingredients into a martini shaker and mix. For frozen margaritas, blend all ingredients with two cups of crushed ice. Pour into the margarita glass, adding more ice if desired. Add a lime or lemon slice to the side of the glass for garnish.
