  • Juice of 23 limes
  • 4 ounces club soda


  1. Salt the rim of two rocks glasses (instructions in notes). Fill each with ice. Set aside.
  2. Add about 2 cups of ice to a cocktail shaker.

How to salt the rim of a glass for margaritas

  • Chill glasses in the fridge for at least ten minutes.
  • Pour Kosher salt into a shallow dish or plate in an even layer.
  • Remove the glasses from the fridge, then rub a freshly cut lime wedge around the rim.
  • Twist the glass rim in the salt a few times so it sticks to the lime juice.
  • Add your ice and margarita and enjoy!
