Margaritas

Recipe from: 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!

1 ⅔ cup Sauza Comemorativo tequila
¼ cup Grand Marnier
½ cup lime juice
1 teaspoon finely grated lime zest
¼ 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.
