Making a margarita with a gold tequila, such as Jose Cuervo Especial, gives this classic Mexican cocktail a fuller-bodied flavor.
1 1/2 oz. Jose Cuervo Especial tequila
1 1/2 oz. Cointreau
1 oz. fresh lime juice
12 medium ice cubes
Lime slice, for garnish
In a glass cocktail shaker, combine tequila, Cointreau, lime juice, and ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a margarita glass (if desired, rim the glass with salt first). Garnish with a lime slice.
