A bartender at a chain restaurant gave me their margarita recipe. It’s the perfect combo… and very dangerous.
- 1½ oz. Sauza Gold tequila
- ½ oz. Gran Gala (its a kind of orange liquer)
- ½ oz. Cointreau (ditto)
- 2½ oz. sour mix
- Juice of half a lime
- Coarse Salt
- Rim margarita glass with salt. (Hint, instead of plunking the whole rim in the salt dish, I just pat the outside in the salt so it stays on the rim and not in the drink). Fill with ice.
- In a shaker filled with ice, combine tequila, Cointreau, Gran Gala, lime juice, and sour mix. Shake and strain over rocks in the margarita glass.
- Repeat as necessary.
