Total Time: 


2 lime wedges, plus the juice of 1 lime
Kosher salt
Ice cubes, for shaking and serving

Run one of the lime wedges around the rim of a rocks glass.

Place about 1 tablespoon of kosher salt into a plate. Dip the rim of the glass in the salt. Fill the glass with ice cubes.

In a cocktail shaker filled halfway with ice cubes, combine the tequila, triple sec, lime juice and agave. Shake until well-chilled, 15 to 20 seconds. Strain the cocktail mixture into the prepared glass. Garnish with the second lime wedge and serve immediately.
