Top Shelf Margarita Grande

  • Yield: 1 large margarita cocktail


  • Finely grated lime zest
  • Coarse kosher salt
  • Lime slice or wedge
  • 2 ounces top-shelf tequila (recommended: Cuervo Gold or anejo tequila)
  • 1-ounce orange-flavored liqueur (recommended: Grand Marnier or Cointreau)
  • 1 1/2 ounces lime juice, or to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups ice cubes


  • In a small shallow bowl or rimmed saucer combine the lime zest and salt and mix well. Run the lime slice around the rim of a stemmed, wide mouthed glass to moisten it, then turn the glass upside down and press the rim in the salt mixture. Set glass aside.

  • In a cocktail shaker combine all remaining ingredients and shake well to chill. Strain into the prepared glass and serve immediately.
