Perfect Margarita (rocks)

It might be a little late in the season for margaritas, but I'm in Albuquerque, and tequila seems like the official beverage of the southwest. The proportions of this Margarita are from Dale Degroff, of course, but I've added a little agave nectar to smooth things out. This was my first use of Patron Citronge (read more about how it compares to Cointreau and other alternatives here), and I have to say that I'm a fan. 
  • 1.5 Tequila (Milagro Blanco)
  • 1.25 Patron Citronge (cheaper than Cointreau and very tasty)
  • .75 Lime juice, freshly squeezed, no pulp.
  • .375 agave nectar

Shake with ice and strain into chilled glasses with ice.
