For me, start with a high quality blanco tequila, no cheap stuff (and you can stuff your Jose Quervo). Leave the reposados and anejos for sipping (not that that is a bad thing). Blancos have a brighter, smokier, in your face quality that's ideal for a margarita.

Two parts tequila.
Half part Gran Marnier or Cointreau.
Half part lime juice
half part agave nectar.

Combine in a shaker, shake well, strain into a salt rimmed martini glass.

I own the Bartenders Bible and has always produced great results

edit: if you have a Red Robin, or some other good restaurant chain (Apple Bees, TGI Friday) they usually have lots of different kinds .. try local & chain Mexican restaurants too.

Am loving the step by step pics cmarchibald. Looks like you have a good margarita set up. One of my best friends is crazy about margeritas, so the tips will come in handy. Thanks very much
