  1. Grate the zest of 2 limes into a small bowl. Cut the zested limes in half, and squeeze the juice into a measuring cup to get 1/2 cup. Combine lime zest, lime juice, sugar and water. Cover, and refrigerate for approximately 24 hours.
  2. Before serving, stir in the tequila and Grand Marnier. Rub rim of 4 glasses with sliced lime, and dip into salt. Take another slice of lime, cut in half, slice under skin of lime to halfway point, and place on glass for garnish.

I absolutely loved this recipe! I won't have on the rocks any other way! I used Cointreau instead of Grand Marnier. I think a cup may be a little strong, though I use the quantities listed he...

These were good but oh boy, they are STRONG! And that is after I decreased the amount of tequila a bit. They tasted great, you could smell the liquor but not really taste it. However, making the...

By far the best Margarita's on the rocks we've ever had! I make the in mass (up the servings to 20) for parties. They are so strong...more like martini's than a traditional margarita, so be su...

My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe! I had never had a non-blended one before and my husband said it was the best margarita he'd ever had. I was expecting something harsh but this was ...

I'm not much of a margarita drinker, but these were oh-so-good! I agree with other reviewers - this really made about 2 or maybe 3 drinks (if served on the rocks). I also cut the amount of teq...
