In a large jar with a tight-fitting lid, vigorously shake syrup ingredients until the sugar dissolves, about 1 minute. Pour the syrup into a pitcher.
Add drink ingredients to the pitcher; stir.
To rim the glass, put lime juice on one plate and salt on another plate. Dip the rims of 8 glasses into the lime juice, then into the salt.
Fill the glasses with ice, then add the margarita. Garnish with lime wedges.
