Sounds tasty, though I'm not entirely convinced that top-shelf liquor contributes to the overall quality of mixed drinks--in most cases anyway. Maybe mid-shelf ;) What's more important, as you point out, is the fresh squeezed lemon juice--fresh ingredients are what really distinguish a real drink from a Mr T Special. To my palate, top-shelf dooky is meant to be sipped and savored--especially in the case of Tequila. On the other end of the spectrum, there are some low-shelf liquors that should NEVER be sipped!

I always used lime juice when I tended bar (the maitre d' was Spanish). The tequila was so mid-shelf my memory has no clue as to the brand, but this was 40 years ago. Likewise, dunno the triple sec brand. But the salt - oooh, baby! That was genu-wine Morton's, straight out of the box! Still use it. A..and I used lime wedges for the garnish. Doubt if could've gotten that little curly-que twist, no matter how big the tip looked to be.
Maybe I'm an Old neanderthal but give me some 1911's plenty of ammo and BEER!!!!!!!!!!!!! the mushroom
I don't know about tequila, but you can definitely taste the difference b/t mid/top-shelf vodka and the cheap stuff.... :P
Grand Marnier works better!! And try Patron in the white for the tequila..........cactus juice makes you loose!
