With only three ingredients, balanced to your liking, the classic margarita is one of the easiest cocktails to mix at home.  Grab some silver tequila, fresh lime, and triple sec, add a little ice, shake, and then pour.  Dip the rim of the glass in salt, sugar, or flavored garnishes for an optional flavor boost.  Or play around with a few fruity flavors to liven up your next party.  Experiment with garnishes, using flavored salts, spices, and grated citrus zests.  With an almost endless supply of recipes available online, isn't it time to ditch the margarita mix and craft your own summery cocktails?
