Spice up your next taco night with this light margarita recipe that is wonderfully refreshing—and we’ve included a salted rim. Our twist: We’ve mixed freshly grated lime zest with the salt for a punch of citrus flavor with every sip. It makes for a lovely presentation, but it is not essential. To be on the safe side, plan to buy nine limes for this recipe as each one yields about a tablespoon of juice. Chilled seltzer water gives the drinks a bit of sparkle to make them even more refreshing. If you’re prepping these ahead, add the seltzer just before serving.
