Combine lime juice, simple syrup, tequila, and orange liqueur in a blender and top with ice. Blend on high until ice is broken up. Serve immediately.
What to buy: Get the best-quality 100 percent agave tequila you can afford; it’ll taste better, and you won’t be as regretful the day after.
Also, try to use Cointreau or Grand Marnier instead of Triple Sec—they’re not as sugary and have a truer orange flavor.
