Cadillac Margarita

Sharing is caring!

A Cadillac Margarita is a premium twist on the classic margarita, featuring the smooth taste of blanco tequila, the rich, orange-flavored Grand Marnier, fresh lemon juice, and sweet agave syrup. This cocktail is typically served with a salted rim, offering a perfect balance of citrusy, sweet, and slightly bitter flavors.

Tasting Notes

The first sip of a Cadillac Margarita greets your palate with the crisp, clean flavor of blanco tequila, complemented by the bright citrus notes of fresh lemon juice. The Grand Marnier adds a sophisticated layer of complexity, with its smooth, orange essence blending harmoniously with the other ingredients. The agave syrup provides a gentle sweetness that balances the tartness of the lemon juice without overpowering the drink.

As you continue to enjoy the Cadillac Margarita, the salted rim enhances the overall experience, offering a contrasting savory element that brings out the cocktail’s nuanced flavors. The combination of the tequila’s earthy undertones, the Grand Marnier’s depth, and the refreshing lemon juice creates a well-rounded and satisfying drink that’s both luxurious and refreshing.

Tips & Tricks

Substitute the lemon juice with lime juice for a more traditional margarita flavor.

Use a reposado tequila instead of blanco for a smoother, more aged taste.
