Signature Dish of Kay Hartman


This is the very best Margarita I've ever had (and I've had LOTS!). Note that it takes fresh lime juice and zest/rind: it takes the best to make the best!

Gloria Puester

1 2/3 cup Sauza Comemorativo tequila
1/4 cup Grand Marnier
1/2 cup lime juice
1 teaspoon finely grated lime zest
1/4 cup sugar
Lime wedges
Coarse salt

Mix the tequila, Grand Marnier, lime juice, lime zest, and sugar in a glass or plastic pitcher until the sugar dissolves. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours (but no more than 24 hours). Strain into another pitcher.

Rub the rims of 8 6- to 8-ounce glasses with a lime wedge, then dip the rims in a dish of coarse salt. Serve the margaritas on the rocks in the prepared glasses.
