  • 1.5 oz. tequila, reposado (3 Tbsp.)
  • 1 oz. 2 Tbsp. Grand Marnier (2 Tbsp.)
  • ¾ oz. lime juice freshly squeezed (1 ½ Tbsp.)
  • ¼ oz. agave nectar (2 tsp.)
  • Ice
  • Salt optional


  1. Fill a cocktail shaker or a large glass mason jar half full with ice and then pour in the tequila, Grand Marnier, lime juice, and agave nectar.

  2. Shake for 10-20 seconds, or until the drink is well mixed and the shaker is chilled.

  3. If you’d like a strong margarita, serve immediately so the ice does not melt. If you’d prefer a weaker margarita, let the shaker sit for a minute or two, shake again for 5-10 seconds, and then serve.

For a Salted Rim:

  1. Quarter a lime and cut a slice down the center. Rub the lime wedge around the edge of the margarita glass.
  2. Fill a small plate with salt at least ⅛ to ¼-inch thick. Dip the juice-coated glass into the salt, spinning it around to coat all sides evenly.
  3. Pour the Cadillac margarita drink into the glass, being careful not to disrupt the salted rim and garnish with a lime wedge. Enjoy!
