Ingredients

  • 1 ½ ounces Don Q añejo
  • ½ ounce Grand Marnier
  • 1 ounce lemon juice
  • 1 ounce simple syrup
  • Salt (rim)

Directions

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled partway with ice. Shake until cold and then strain into a salt-rimmed margarita glass. Garnish with a slice of lime.

Rum Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Rum Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
