La Reina Margarita


  • 2 oz Tequila (blanco or reposado, from 100% agave)
  • 2 oz Fresh Lime Juice
  • 1 oz Agave Nectar
  • 1 oz Grand Marnier


Rim a margarita glass with lime juice and Kosher or margarita salt; fill glass with ice. Shake ingredients in a tin over ice, and strain into glass.  Garnish with a lime wheel.

For a uniquely delicious margarita rim, use Mexican tajin seasoning (a chili-lime salt), available at Mexican grocers and online.
