Have a glass that you feel may fit the occasion such as a Margarita Glass and wet the outside with a fresh lime or lemon glass and moisten the rim with one of the above ingredients. Fill a saucer with either Kosher salt or fine sugar (salt is the usual for a Margarita) and place the rim of the glass into the saucer, turning slowly so that the outside rim of the glass is covered with either the salt or sugar. Shake off any excess. Chill the glass after this process.

Place the ice cubes and the above ingredients other than the lime wedge into a shaker. Until well mixed. Pour slowly into your prepared glass. Finish off with a lime wedge as a garnish.
