Add the tequila, Grand Marnier, lime juice and a handful of ice to a cocktail shaker. Put on the top and shake vigorously, about 15-30 seconds. For a salted rim, run a lime slice along the edge of the serving glass. Swirl the moistened rim into a small plate of coarse sea salt. Add ice to the glass. Strain the margarita into the serving glass. Garnish with additional lime slices if desired. Enjoy!
For a 12-serving pitcher, stir together 3 cups tequila, 1 ½ cups Grand Marnier and 1 ½ cups lime juice.
Cadillac margaritas traditionally don’t call for sweetener. However, if you prefer a little extra sweetness, add 1 ounce of simple syrup or agave nectar.
Pick limes that give in when you squeeze them. This ensures they’re nice and juicy.
Before juicing the lime, firmly roll it on the countertop a few times to help get the juice flowing.
The best mixing technique is to use two hands while shaking. This helps ensure you get enough vigorous force behind the shake.
