THE COCKTAIL HOUR: Cadillac Margarita

You see this variation of a regular margarita at many restaurants these days.  It's becoming so prevalent that you can now go into just about any bar and order a Cadillac margarita and the bartender will automatically know you talking about tequila, grand marnier, brandy, plus a sour component.

Watch the Video!

This is just an upgrade from a regular margarita but it does make it taste better...if you do it right.  The key is to use good ingredients. 100% agave tequila, Grand Marnier (or Cointreau) instead of triple sec, a nice brandy (or cognac if you really want to go upscale) for an added kick.  Lime or lemon juice in place of sweet and sour mix.

All hand shaken and served over the rocks.

2 oz. - premium tequila
1.3 oz - Grand Marnier or Cointreau
2/3 oz - brandy or cognac
2 oz - lemon or lime juice (or 1 oz. of each), fresh squeezed

Mix all ingredients in a cocktail shaker over ice, shake and pour over ice into two salted-rim margarita glasses.
