I’m a sucker for a good margarita – this is a great margarita! The key limes give it a very distinctive flavor. If you don’t have key limes available, an acceptable substitute is Nellie & Joe’s Famous Key West Lime Juice.
Hand Shaken Margarita
- 2 parts tequila
- 1/2 part Grand Marnier
- 1/2 part agave nectar
- 1 part key lime juice
- 1 part orange juice optional
Shake ingredients with desired amount of ice
Pour all into Salt-rimmed glass
Garnish with fresh lemon or lime slice
I like Grand Marnier, but some prefer Cointreau or Triple Sec.
You can float another shot of Grand Marnier on top after pouring into glass and you've got a Cadillac.
