Classic Margarita

Makes 2 cocktails

½ cup fresh lime juice, plus a tablespoon or so separately
Coarse salt to rim glasses
½ cup tequila (I prefer the more robust flavor of reposado, but blanco is fine.)
½ cup Grand Marnier (Gran Gala is a good, cheaper substitute)
Lime wheel for garnish

Directions
Dip the corner of a paper towel into the tablespoon of lime juice and use it to wet the two glasses around the rim where you want the salt. Place a tablespoon or so of the salt in a saucer and roll the glasses over it to get salt to adhere. Fill glasses with ice (if serving on the rocks).

In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add the ½ cup of lime juice, tequila and Grand Marnier. Shake several second until the shaker feels ice cold. Pour through a strainer into your glasses. Garnish with a lime wheel or wedge.
