  • Run lime wedge around one side of the rim of a chilled rocks glass; dip rim in salt to coat. Partially fill glass with ice (we prefer 1 large sphere for minimal melting and dilution).

  • Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Add tequila, orange liqueur, and reserved lime juice. Shake vigorously until outside of shaker is cold and frosty, about 10 seconds; strain into prepared glass. Garnish with lime wheel and serve immediately.

Cook's Notes

Double this recipe to make two drinks; they'll fit in a standard cocktail shaker.
