Margaritas to Die For

This morning we headed towards a Mexican restaurant.  I had a wrong address and we couldn’t find it. We ended instead in a Peruvian restaurant where we ate tamales and ceviche (dishes that can be found in Mexican restaurants as well). Back home we had Margaritas. To die for.

This is the recipe. Enjoy!

         2 limes
         1/4 cup white sugar
         3 tablespoons water
         1 cup premium tequila
         2 tablespoons brandy-based orange liqueur (such as Grand Marnier)
         1 lime, sliced into rounds
         coarse salt

1.Grate the zest of 2 limes into a small bowl. Cut the zested limes in half, and squeeze the juice into a measuring cup to get 1/2 cup. Combine lime zest, lime juice, sugar and water. Cover, and refrigerate for approximately 24 hours.
2.Before serving, stir in the tequila and Grand Marnier. Rub rim of 4 glasses with sliced lime, and dip into salt. Take another slice of lime, cut in half, slice under skin of lime to halfway point, and place on glass for garnish.
