For the salt air:  

1 teaspoon (5 ml) sucro   

4 ounces fresh lime juice  

1 tablespoon (15ml) kosher salt  


In a small saucepan, warm 1 cup of water and the sucro over medium low heat. Add the lime juice and salt and stir until dissolved, about 2 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Peel back some of the plastic wrap and insert an immersion blender and blend until bubbles form and the mixture becomes thick foam. The plastic will keep the foam from splattering. Set aside.

¾ ounce agave syrup  


Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, add tequila, lime juice and agave and shake vigorously for 45 seconds. Strain twice into a Margarita glass and spoon salt air over the top.
