Surprise surprise margarita

1 ounce Cointreau
2 Limes; freshly squeezed juice of
2 Lemon; freshly squeezed juice of
1 dash Salt (to taste)

I came across the following recipe quoted from a book by the originator of the Margarita (called surprise surprise Margarita). I've tried it and consider it far far far far superior to ANY margarita using Triple Sec or (God forbid), Margarita Mix. And, believe it or not it's very simple.

Salt the rim of a glass and fill with crushed ice. Pour into a cocktail shaker two oz premium tequila, and one oz Cointreau. Follow with the freshly squeezed juice of two limes and one lemon. Add a dash of salt (to taste). Mix and pour over crushed ice.

Substitutions can be used - Pure lime juice and pure lemon juice, but it's not as fresh that way.
