Chef’s Notes:

For the best results, be sure to use fresh ice, fresh limes, and a nice bottle of triple sec, like Cointreau(R). You’ll also want to use a decent 100% agave white tequila, like the Don Abraham’s Single Estate Blanco Tequila I enjoyed, but having said that, feel free to use one with a shorter name.

Some like to add a dash of agave nectar for a little extra sweetness, but I do not.
