Rim it up: Instead of just salt, try mixing half salt and half sugar into your rim blend. A pinch of chipotle powder is another of my favorite twists.
Swap the citrus: In place of orange juice, try grapefruit juice (my favorite), blood orange juice, or pomegranate juice
Make it fruity: Muddle fruits like strawberries, blackberries, slices, or raspberries in the bottom of your glass, then pour the margarita on top and stir.
Make it spicy: Add a few sliced jalapeños to your shaker
Optional ingredients (see below)
1 teaspoon light agave nectar (add 2 if you prefer a sweeter margarita)
1 ½ tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice (about ½ medium orange)
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice (about 1 large or 1 ½ small limes)
1 ½ ounces silver tequila (about 3 tablespoons)
To rim the glass: kosher salt, lime wedge
