Start by salting the rim of your glass. Run a lime wedge along the top rim of a glass then dip the glass into a small plate of salt.
Add Tequila, triple sec, and lime juice into a cocktail shaker. Add agave nectar to your desired level of sweetness, then vigorously shake the mixture.
Fill your glass with ice and pour in the margarita mixture, garnishing with a lime wedge.
