    You don't have to use Triple Sec. It depends on what Margarita you're looking for here.

    A basic margarita consists of Tequila , lemon or lime juice and your choice of triple sec (most common), curacao or cointreau.

    Umm, yeah. Or you could just do straight tequila shots and pretend they're margaritas.
