Squeeze it in there; okay. Get enough lime juice in there 'cause the, the real lime juice is what's going to make your Margarita tastes great. Now we're going to go ahead and give that a really good shake. Now Margaritas usually take salt; it's optional; okay. We're going to have a rimmer. If you don't have one of these you can simply take a paper napkin, put some salt in it and rim your glass with salt; okay.
