Put tequila and triple sec in a cocktail shaker. Add some lime juice. Add some ice to keep cool. Shake up very well. Put into serving glasses and garnish with lime slices.

For an extra touch of salty flavor to take the edge off the sourness of the lime juice, give the rim of the glass a touch of salt. Before filling the glass, first rub the rim of the glass with a lime wedge. Then roll the edge of the glass over some salt to make it stick to the rim.
