The first thing you'll need to do to prepare this margarita on the rocks is to pour the coarse salt on a clean working surface, use a wedge of lime to run it around the rim of the glass and then dip it in the salt so it sticks to it.


Next, fill the glass two thirds of the way with the crushed ice. If you haven't got any, you can crush normal ice with a blender or similar.

Pour the mix over the ice in your glass. To give it the finishing touch, add a wedge of lime to the side of the glass. Now you can enjoy your perfect margarita on the rocks!
