How to Make It
Rub rim of a chilled margarita glass with lime wedge, and dip rim in salt to coat, if desired.
Fill cocktail shaker half full with ice. Add lime juice, liqueur, tequila, and powdered sugar; cover with lid, and shake until thoroughly chilled. Strain into prepared glass. Garnish, if desired, and serve immediately.
*1/3 cup thawed frozen limeade concentrate may be substituted for fresh lime juice. Omit powdered sugar, and proceed with recipe as directed.
Note: For testing purposes only, we used Midori for melon liqueur and Jose Cuervo Especial for tequila.
