For these easy, icy margaritas, I'll start by salting the rim of of my glass by using a lime wedge to coat the rim and then dipping it in salt. (If you're enjoying these on a hot day, I LOVE these stylish short stemless glasses that also keep your margarita nice and icy. Or for a cute and quirky twist- you can try these super cute tall cactus glasses that I'm using). Fill the glass with ice.

Then, you'll want to gather 3 oz of lime juice (about 3 limes for fresh juice) or you can use the concentrate, 2 oz of silver tequila, and 1 oz orange liqueur (I'll save money by using the little bottles if this is all I'm making!). Add 1 tablespoon of simple syrup (it's easy to make or you can buy it prepared!) Mix these up in a cocktail shaker and then strain into your waiting glass. Garnish with a lime wedge.

That's it! Your margarita is ready for you to enjoy!
