Here's what you'll need: Fresh fruit (we went with cucumber, watermelon, and pineapple) tequila triple sec margarita salt lemon/ lime

The first step is putting the fresh fruit through a juicer. Next, add tequila and triple sec. The easiest way to measure quantities is to use a 2:1:1 ratio, with the largest portion being fresh juice. Once those three ingredients are combined, take a lime wedge and rub it along the edge of the glass. Dip the glass into margarita salt, completely coating the rim. Add ice to the glass, then pour yourself a drink. Top off with a few squeezes of lemon and use a lime as garnish. If you prefer sweet cocktails you may add simple syrup, but we found that the fresh fruit was sweet enough for our taste.
