A Mindfully Top of the Shelf Margarita

1/2 cup lime juice, fresh squeezed
1/2 cup Cointreau
1/2 cup Grand Marnier
1 cup Herradura Gold Tequila
Optional: lime wedges and salt for glass rims

Spoon Mage™ Note:

Do not use lime from a bottle or one of those hideous margarita mixes. Use limes and squeeze them yourself.

Herradura Gold is slightly sweeter than Silver. Patron Silver’s lighter flavor allows the lime to shine.

Choose the tequila that fits your taste buds and your pocketbook.


Mix the lime juice, Cointreau, Grand Marnier, and Herradura in a large pitcher. Then fill it with ice cubes.

Pour into glasses, add more ice cubes if you wish, and garnish with lime slices.

We never salt the glasses, but you may if you like it.

On the rocks, no salt, one lime wedge on the glass. Give it a try.
