After much trial and error, here it is:

2 oz Sauza Hornitos (or similar qualilty)
1/2 oz Agave nectar
1/2 oz water
1 oz fresh squeezed lime juice
Light splash Cointreau or Patron Citrogne

combine nectar and water in a shot glass and mix (basically thinning the nectar)

Pour tequila into ice-filled shaker
Add splash of Cointreau
Pour nectar mix in
Add juice of one lime - a normal sized lime will produce about 1.25 oz, so you DON'T want to over-squeeze it....that will just get rind oils in there.

Shake

Pour over ice

lather, rinse, repeat

It shouldn't have taken me 39 years to get to this point, but there it is

enjoy

Not enough lime for my taste (escaped Brit) and I'd probably go with 1/2oz of cointreau, but it sounds interesting...

the excessive tartness is what I've been trying to escape, but this is still nicely limey without out puckering the lips.

the agave really offsets the tartness

As taught to me by The Master himself, EricTheHun's World Famous Windex Margarita

3 parts Jose Cuervo Margarita Mix
1 part Gold Tequila (Cuervo or Sauza)
1 splash Triple Sec
1 splash Blue Curacao (When it looks like Windex, you've got it just right)
1 generous wedge of lime, per glass, fresh squeezed.
Ice - Wayne prefered his 'rita frozen, but when served out at the Hun Farm, on the rocks was tradition.

As happy as I am to see ETH's Windex Margarita recipe make numerous appearances on the web, and the devout connoisseurs singing its praises, it may interest many of you to know that Wayne enjoyed MANY different styles and flavors of 'Rita. I spent many, many hours with Wayne at the table and then the bar in the cabin trying dozens of 'Rita recipes.

Rest assured, I'm positive ETH would give this recipe a day in court. I know I most certainly will!

Heres mine

1 part Cointreau
1 part mad_mardigan's special sour mix (50/50 mix of freshly squeezed lime juice and orange juice)

serve on rocks

I am tagging because my sister's skinny magarita is not cutting it for me anymore. I was reduced to my usual tequila on the rocks with a squeeze of a quartered lime. I really wish that I had learned about good tequila earlier in life. I drank a lot of bad tequila before I discovered the real quill.

We buy the mix at the store, add tequila and voila! done.
