Instructions
  1. Rub rim of serving glass with squeezed lime rind. Invert into salt to salt the rim. Add a few ice cubes.
  2. Stir or shake the lime juice, agave syrup and tequila vigorously until syrup is dissolved.
  3. Pour over ice and serve.
Recipe Notes

Use a good tequila made with the tahona process, such as Fortaleza, Patrón or Casa Noble Organic. No need for aged tequila here.

For subtle salt flavor, skip the salted glass rim and use a salt shot glass to measure the lime and tequila, the kind of shot glass carved out of pink Himalayan salt.
