  • 1 oz agave syrup  (one part agave nectar, one part water)

Garnish: Lime wheel
Glass: Cocktail, Margarita or Old Fashioned

Add all the ingredients to a shaker and fill with ice. Shake, and strain into a chilled Margarita or cocktail glass, or an Old Fashioned glass filled with fresh ice. Garnish with a lime wheel.
