I salted the rim of my margarita for the aesthetic and even more flavor. Sugar is a good alternative as well. 

The Process:

  1. Add tequila, lime juice and simple syrup to a cocktail shake with ice and shake until chilled

  2. Strain the mixture into a cocktail glass

  3. Pour the red wine on the back of a bar spoon slowly to pool it at the top of the drink

  4. Add the lime for garnish
