Equal parts tequila and triple sec (about 1 ounce)
2 Ounces of Rosie's lime cordial. Shake with crshed ice.

But I am looking forward to trying ALL of the other recipes!

All the recipeeeees taste great. I tried them all (last evening) hic. I do like to add a splash of sprite to sweeten it up just a fuzz. After all, it's just lemon, lime and sugar water. Wow....just wow, what I'll do in the interest of the science of mixology. My head!!

Failure is most often times a temporary condition........
Giving up is what makes it permanent.

Bill, I dont mean to be disagreeable but, Cointreau is just over priced triple sec. Gran Marnier makes a much better margarita and unfortuantely is more expensive.
Do a taste test and I think you will agree.
I've been in buisness since 1989 and whenever were serving Margaritas everyone tells us its the best they have ever had. This is largely in part because you cant get a good Margarita at the majority of establesments. They use pre-maid bar lemon or sour mix and its just not the same as fresh citrus and simple syrup.
Quidam (pronounced "key-DAHM"; IPA: /kiːˈdɑːm/) means "a certain one" -or- "a certain thing", "an anonymous passerby" in Classical Latin
One must be constantly on guard against advocates of the "Be reasonable and do it the hard and expensive way" school of thought.

That type of elitist thinking has ballooned the cost of boats, and cruising , far beyond what it need be, and beyond the reach of too many low income cruisers, for no benefit. --Brent Swain

quidam, we'll have to agree to disagree...

Cointreau is just so far superior to Triple Sec...
