I'm trying to add an unswitched outlet to my garage and the closest place where I have power is to a set of 3-way switches that control the lights in the garage. How can I wire in the outlet so its always live, but the 3 way switches still control the lights as intended?

Look here for answers and diagrams on 3-way and 4-way switches.

If there is only one cable with 3 wires in the switch box you CAN NOT do it. You don't have a neutral wire.
