Use fresh Key lime juice to give this margarita a tropical flair. Instead of simple syrup to balance the tart lime flavor, use agave nectar, a sweetener produced in Mexico that's sweeter than sugar.

How to Make It

Step 1

Rub rim of a rocks or margarita glass with lime wedge, then dip in coarse salt.

Step 2

Combine Key lime juice and remaining ingredients in an ice-filled shaker. Shake vigorously, and pour into prepared glass.

Chef's Notes

For a spicy jalapeño version, add 1 1/2 teaspoons jalapeño chile sauce to the shaker.
