For a salt or sugar rim, combine 2 Tablespoons of kosher salt or sugar with the zest of 1 lemon. Mix to combine on a small plate.
Run a lemon wedge around the rim of the glass to wet. Roll and press the glass edge into the salt or sugar mixture.
In a shaker (or large glass), combine the tequila, triple sec, and lemon juice. Add some ice. Shake or stir for 30 seconds.
Fill the glass with ice. Strain the margarita into the drinking glass.
Garnish with lemon wedges, wheels, and peel as desired.
Want to garnish with lemon peels? Just use a standard kitchen peeler and strip off the lemon skin before squeezing the lemon.I LOVE my citrus juicer and use it all the time. I get so much more juice out of each fruit.Kosher salt is best for the rim because it has a larger grain texture, just like at restaurants.
