Step 1

If you like margaritas served in a glass with salt, rub the outside rims of 6 glasses with a cut lime and dip each glass lightly into a plate of kosher salt.

Combine the lime juice, lemon juice, Triple Sec, tequila, and ice in a blender and purée. Place extra ice in a cocktail shaker. Fill with margarita mix, shake well, and strain into glasses.
