2 ounces tequila (made from 100 percent agave, preferably reposado or blanco)
1 ounce Cointreau
1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
Salt Trader’s Margarita Salt
Using a lime wedge to wet the lip, rim a margarita glass with Salt Trader’s Margarita Salt. This beautiful salt features Australian Murray River Salt Flakes (a lovely apricot color) combined with freshly ground chipotles! It’s the perfect Margarita rimmer because of its color, texture and taste. Combine tequila, Cointreau, and lime juice in cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake and strain drink into glass and serve.
