In cocktail shaker, combine 2 cups of the ice, the tequila, lime juice, orange liqueur, agave syrup and orange juice (if using); shake until well chilled. 

Rim 2 margarita or rocks glasses with juice from lime slices. Place salt on small plate. Dip rims of glasses into salt. Divide remaining 1 cup ice between glasses. Strain margarita into glasses. Garnish with lime slices. 

Test Kitchen Tip: The best-quality tequila is worth the extra cost. Additionally, a double recipe won’t fit in a standard cocktail shaker; if serving a crowd, make multiple batches.
