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.
