This is the classic margarita and its still one of the best, though the amounts are a little off... the recipie as shown makes only 3 ounces, which is tiny. You will have to double all the amounts to fill even a small margarita glass.

The original, and how we made it when I bartended in a Mexican bar. Though, you should omit the lemon juice part, it MUST be lime juice.
