How to Make It

Step 1

Stir together all ingredients until sugar is dissolved. Pour desired amount of mixture into a cocktail shaker filled with ice cubes. Cover with lid, and shake 30 seconds. Strain into chilled cocktail glasses. Repeat with remaining mixture. Serve immediately (or make ahead; see tip below).

Step 2

Note: We tested with Cointreau orange liqueur.

Step 3

Test Kitchen Tip: Mix up several batches of Pink Cadillac Margaritas 3 to 4 hours before the party starts, and chill in decorative bottles or pitchers, ready to shake and serve when guests arrive.

This is refreshing and tart. Just the thing for an outdoor party.

I had this at a party last night and it was very refreshing. Not the usual after taste I experience when I drink margaritas. This recipe is a keeper and I'm making them tonight!
