"Follow this simple rule of thumb for balanced and delicious margaritas: 2-1-1. Two parts strong tequila, one part sweet and one part sour," says Tad Carducci, co-founder of Tippling Bros. beverage consulting firm. Another tip: "If you always salt half the rim of your glass, you never have to ask your guests if they prefer a margarita with or without."
