Our former senior editor has a side job of advocating proper margarita-making. Following is the only way she thinks a margarita should be prepared. Serve it with either our Cumin Salt or our Cayenne Salt and your next party will be a big hit.
Special equipment: This citrus juicer won us over because of its efficiency and practical design.
What to buy: All self-respecting margaritas are made with only 100 percent agave tequila (we like to use the high-quality Cuervo 1800, Patrón Silver, Herradura, or Don Julio) and Cointreau.

A manual citrus press is all you need for small amounts of juice. This one is sturdy metal that doesn't take up much space or require much force to get every last drop from your fruit.Buy on Amazon ›
