Pink Cadillac Margarita
Pink Cadillac can refer to so many things. It's the name of a movie, a song (or two), the symbol of excellence at Mary Kay, a famous car of Elvis, and as far as slang terms...well we don't want to go there. In this case, it's the name of a modified Golden Margarita. Basically, we're adding some Cranberry Juice to provide the "Pink", and giving it a little tweak on the flavor scale. We hope you enjoy our "Cocktail of the Week", the Pink Cadillac Margarita!
2 oz. Gold Tequila
1 oz. Triple Sec
2 oz. Lime Juice (or Sweet/Sour Mix)
1 oz. Cranberry Juice
Splash of Grand Marnier (optional)
Lime for garnish
Coarse Salt (if desried)
If you like a salted rim, then start with that. Pour all of the liquid ingredients (except the Grand Marnier) into an ice filled cocktail shaker. Cover, shake well, and pour into your Margarita glass. Drizzle a little Grand Marnier (Cointreau also works) over the top, and garnish with a lime wheel. It's simple, tasty, and a great way to start any Happy Hour!
