Description

The Grand Marnier margarita is made with Añejo tequila, fresh lemon juice, and honey syrup. A refreshing and warm, winter buzz.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 ounces Añejo or Reposado tequila
  • 3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 ounce honey syrup
  • 1/2 ounce Grand Marnier
  • Lemon wheel for garnish

honey syrup (makes 1/2 cup)

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup water

Instructions

  1. To make honey syrup, combine warm water and honey in a glass and stir until honey is fully dissolved. I usually heat water in a glass measuring cup in the microwave for 20-30 seconds and stir in honey.
  2. For the salted rim, take a lemon wedge and coat the rim of an old fashioned glass. Dip in margarita salt, rotating until coated.
  3. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Add a cup of ice and shake vigorously for 10 seconds. Pour straight into the old fashioned glass with the (now crushed) ice or fresh ice. Garnish with a lemon wheel.

Notes

If you don’t want to make a lot of honey syrup, just measure out an ounce of both sugar and water for 1-2 cocktails!
