Okay, sure, they require a bit of work, but you'll be so glad you did! Be careful, friends will ask you to bring them to all parties!

  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.

This IS delicious. Makes the best margarita my husband and I have ever had and we are margarita connoisseurs! :o) It is work squeezing all the limes and grating them... we make a double batch though! First sip is a doozy, then it's sooooo mellow. We also use Corazon, Patron or Cabo Wabo tequilla. The best tequilla makes all the difference! Enjoy.

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 here to make just 2 drinks, not 4.

Love at first sip! These margaritas are perfection---intensely flavored, not "icky" sweet, and very smooth. My only change will be that after the 24 hour marination, I will strain out the lime zest. Actually one more change---I plan on making these often, and who needs to read the word "die" every time. From now on, these fabu maggies will be entitled "Margaritas Bev". Much thanks for sharing Jeff Winett
