The good news is that the least expensive tequila makes the best margaritas, but you must use freshly squeezed lime juice.


  • ½ cup coarse salt

  • ½ cup (about 4 limes) freshly squeezed lime juice, plus 1 lime cut in half for the glasses

  • 2 tablespoons (about 1 lemon) freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • 1 cup triple sec

  • 1 cup white tequila


  1. Pour the salt onto a small plate. Rub the outside rim of each glass with the cut lime. Dip each glass into the reserved salt; set aside.

  2. Place lime juice, lemon juice, triple sec, and 3 cups ice in a blender, and puree on low speed until completely blended. Add tequila and blend for 2 seconds. Pour margaritas into the reserved glasses, over ice, and serve immediately.
