Margaritas by the Pitcher (On the Rocks)
According to the Tipsy Texan, the classic margarita consists of tequila, lime and orange liqueur. For the liqueur, the best commercially available brand is Cointreau. If you live in Texas, check your local liquor store for the Austin-produced Paula's Texas Orange, a wonderful, less expensive substitute.
Fill glasses with ice cubes, and pour your freshly-made margarita mix over the ice. Garnish with lime wedges.Makes around 8 margaritas.

Buy containers of Margarita salt that are flat and handy for salting the glasses, but regular salt in a saucer works just fine. Guidance for this recipe was provided by Lucinda Hudson's outstanding book on the subject of tequila, Viva Tequila!: Cocktails, Cooking, and Other Agave Adventures
