Cadillac Recipe


Ingredients:

  • Fine Sea salt
  • 4-5 Ice cubes
  • 3 Lime wedges
  • 15 ml Cointreau
  • 40 ml Lime juice
  • 40 ml Tequila Gold
  • 2 tsp Grand Marnier
  • Lime slice to decorate

Method:

  1. Dampen the ring of a chilled cocktail glass with one of the lime wedges, then dip the rim into fine sea salt.
  2. Pour the tequila, cointreau, and lime juice into a cocktail shaker.
  3. Squeeze the juice from the 2 remaining lime wedges into the shaker, pressing the rind to release its oils.
  4. Drop the wedges into the shaker.
  5. Add the ice cubes and shake vigorously for seconds, then strain the drink into the glass.
  6. Drizzle the grand marnier over the top of the drink.
  7. Decorate with a lime slice.


Tip: Always use smaller sized ice cubes when making a cocktail. This creates a smoother taste by allowing a proper mix of water and alcohol, since they melt faster when the alcohol is poured over them.
