This 5-minute icy cadillac margarita is packed with tequila, cointreau, and grand marnier for a refreshing summer cocktail.


  • 3 oz. resposado tequila
  • 2 oz. cointreau
  • 2 oz. lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon agave juice
  • 2 oz. grand marnier
  • optional: salt for rim and lime garnish


  1. Salt Rim: Cut a lime wedge to make a slight slit in the lime. Place on the rim of the glass and run under until the rim is coated with lime juice. Add flake or course sea salt to a plate. Dunk lime juice lined rim into the salt until coated. Set aside.
  2. Make Margarita: To a cocktail shaker add tequila, cointreau, lime juice and agave as well as 2 ice cubes. Secure the cover and shake vigorously for 5-10 seconds or until cocktail shaker is frosted.
  3. Dress: Carefully add crushed ice to salt rimmed glass, so as not to knock the salt off. Equally, distribute the margarita between the two glasses. Top each margarita with a 1 oz. grand marnier floater and garnish with lime wedge. Serve.
