Let's see how it's done.

To make the simple syrup mix the water and sugar in a microwave-safe bowl or pitcher. Microwave for a minute and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Cool the syrup before using.


Combine all of the ingredients in a mixer with ice and shake well. Strain into a chilled glass. I like to rub a sliced lime on the rim of the glass and dip it in kosher salt before adding the drink.
