No offense, Tequila. You're delicious and you gave Sammy Hagar one more revenue stream but this margarita belongs to Gin. The Margatini is like a Margarita but with Gin. That's the big reveal. Like finding out Benedict Cumberbatch was really Kahn in the second Star Trek reboot movie. Oops. Spoilers.
2 ounces of Gin
1 ounce of Triple Sec
The juice of half a lime
.5 ounce of simple syrup
Coarse salt & sugar for the rim of the glass
Wipe the rim of the glass with a lime wedge.
Rim the glass with a mixture of coarse salt & sugar.
Pour all the ingredients into a shaker with ice.
