A good quality tequila needs no sugar to balance the acidity of lime juice beyond triple sec. Cointreau makes for a balanced, smooth margarita without taking away from the tequila.
1 1/2 oz Tequila
1/2 oz Triple Sec
1 oz Lemon or Lime Juice
Procedures: Rub rim of margarita glass with lime rind and dip in salt. Shake ingredients with ice and strain into the salt-rimmed glass.
