Review:

If desired, for the perfect salt rim you can liquidise or grind sea salt to make it finer, then run a cut slice of lime (or orange) around the outside edge of the glass rim before dipping the outside of the rim into salt. (Only salt the outside of the glass to avoid contaminating the drink.)

Variant:

Margaritas made with premium tequilas are sometimes referred to as 'Deluxe' or 'Cadillac' Margaritas.
