1teaspoonhoney or agave (be sure it's a liquid honey, not the thicker raw variety)
1.5ouncesfreshly squeezed lime juice
1.5ouncesCointreau or Grand Marnier
1teaspoonfreshly squeezed orange juice (optional)
Place hot water and honey or agave in a cocktail shaker and whisk vigorously to combine.
Add in the lime juice, tequila, orange liqueur, and orange juice. Shake vigorously to combine.
Fill a glass with ice. Pour the margarita on top of the ice, garnish with a lime twist or wedge, and serve at once.
If you prefer a salt-rimmed glass, running the flesh of a lime wedge around the top rim of your glass. Then fill a rimmed plate or shallow bowl with salt, and dip the rim of the glass into the salt until it is covered with salt. Set aside while you make your drink.
If you use Grand Marnier, your margarita will have a slightly more orange hue.
