Front End Loader Margarita

Love means never having to say you’re sorry, and the best tequilas mean you never have to hide the taste with extra ingredients.

El Tesoro, Corazón or Herradura. . . With a dash of triple sec and fresh lime juice, you’re in business.

Bonus: the better tequilas come with a “no headache” guarantee. . . as long as you only have one.

2 ounces 100% blue agave tequila
1½ ounces Patrón Citrónge,
Cointreau, or triple sec
1½ ounces fresh-squeezed lime
juice (about 1 lime)
Lime wedge
Margarita salt
Ice

Combine the ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker or mason jar. Pour into a salt-rimmed ice-filled glass. If you want a strong agave flavor use a Blanco tequila. For a milder taste use
Reposado. Garnish with a slice of lime.

A computer lets you
make more mistakes
faster than any other
invention in human
history, with the
possible exception of
handguns and tequila.
