I wanted a simple margarita that was slightly sweet and salty without the mess of salt dropping from the rim. This one is just right. I usually triple the ingredients and fill my quart mug with ice (1/2 cup tequila, 1 cup margarita mix, 1/2 cup orange juice). One serving just disappears too quickly.
