It’s summer! The time when I reach for Lucy Buffett’s cookbook before anything else.
This one is based on Lucy’s Cadillac Margarita, adapted to, naturally, include key lime juice. Because I am obsessed love it.
Key lime margarita
- 1.5 ounces tequila
- 3/4 ounce Grand Marnier
- 1 ounce key lime juice
- 1 ounce simple syrup
- juice of 1/2 lime
- Combine all ingredients in a shaker with as much ice as will fit
- Do the margarita dance (shake it up)
- Run a lime wedge around the edge of the glass and dip it in coarse salt
- When the drink is fabulously cold and frothy, pour into said glass and enjoy.
I’ll take one in August please 😀
this looks delicious….I just started experimenting with making my own cocktails…so much fun 🙂 I will try your recipe this weekend.
It IS fun isn’t it?? 🙂 And certainly more affordable! ~OPK
Oh. My. Goodness. I love, love, love margaritas and now you’ve made a KEY LIME one?! I’ll be drinking one of these (or several) this weekend! Thanks for the recipe.
Yay!! Lemme know how you like them! 🙂
OOO MAN! You are screaming (not calling) my name with this! Seriously….Yum! When I come to NashVegas will you make me a bucket of these?
DUH! Of course!
