  • 1 1/2 ounces tequila
  • 1 ounce elderflower liqueur
  • 1/2 ounce Grand Marnier
  • 2 ounces lime juice
  • 1 ounce simple syrup*
  • thinly sliced lime for garnish
  • coarse margarita salt for rimming the glass


  1. Moisten the edge of your glass with a lime wedge and rim in coarse salt. Fill the glass with crushed ice. Add a few ice cubes to a cocktail shaker and add the tequila, elderflower liqueur, Grand Marnier, lime juice, and simple syrup. Shake for 20-30 seconds and pour in the glass. Garnish with a lime slice and enjoy immediately!

Recipe Notes

*To make simple syrup, boil 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar until dissolved (about 30 seconds to 1 minute). Cool, store in the fridge, and use in cocktails! This will make more than you need for the recipe.
*If you want to make these pitcher-style for a crowd, I'd measure all of the margarita ingredients out for how many people you want to make them for, add everything to a pitcher, and chill the mixture in the fridge. When you're ready to serve, add the crushed ice, and serve!
