Margaritas are often made with an orange liqueur like Cointreau, which can make them very sweet. In this version, though, freshly squeezed lime juice—never bottled—has plenty of citrus flavor, and agave syrup sweetens and complements the agave flavors in the tequila. A salted rim is not necessary, but many people like it because it takes the burn out of the alcohol.
