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
Recipe NotesI 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.
