This is the best margarita you will ever drink! It took a while to fine-tune this recipe, but when you taste it, you will see why I call it The Ultimate Margarita. I am so happy to share this recipe with my justapinch.com friends. Enjoy!
This is a classic, smooth margarita. But watch out … this is the kind of drink that will sneak up on you before you know it. Great for your next fiesta!
Note: the ingredients listed below all work together to create the ultimate margarita. don’t make any substitutions and you will not be disapointed.
2 ounces Grand Marnier
1 1/2 ounces Tequila
2 ounces lime juice
1 1/2 ounces simple syrup
orange + lemon + lime slices for garnish
salt for the rim
Rim the ridge of your glass with a lime wedge and dip in margarita salt. Fill the glass with ice. In a cocktail shaker, combine tequila, grand marnier, simple syrup and lime juice with ice, and shake for about 30 seconds. Pour over ice and squeeze in lemon, lime and orange slices.
For simple syrup: combine equal parts sugar and water, bring to a boil and let sugar dissolve, then turn off heat and let cool completely.
This recipe can be easily doubled, quadrupled, etc. Since everyone’s tastes differ, add simple syrup 1/4 cup at a time and go from taste. I also suggest buying the lime juice if you plan on making a pitcher (or 2) considering you’d have to squeeze a billion limes to get enough juice.
