Take your serving glass (typically a margarita glass, but any glass with a wide mouth will work), and rub some ReaLime around the edge. Now place some salt (preferably large crystal salt, like sea salt) on a plate and turn the glass upside down and coat the previously lime-rimmed edge with salt. If chilling your drink, move your salt rimmed glass into the refrigerator until your drink is ready.
Add all liquid ingredients into a shaker and shake (with or without ice). Strain your cocktail into your glass.
Now enjoy! This is a simple cocktail that leaves some space for experimentation. You can swap lime for lemon, or blue curaçao, or maybe even grenadine. Safe experimentation is key, though!
**For tequila connoisseurs, you’ll know that tequila, like scotch, has different grades and versions, depending on aging/maturing. The base drink we referenced calls for the blanco style of tequila, but for some added richness, we recommend a good reposado, though it tends to cost a little more. The labs do not recommend anejo or extra anejo, only because these can be pricey and are delicious enough to be sampled alone (much like a 30 year old scotch). Of course, try it if you like, but it’s your wallet. That being said, if you’ve got extra, we’d be happy to sample it for you!
