This is the "Cadillac" of Margaritas because there is no skimping on the ingredients. If you are to pull of the proper Cadillac Margarita you will need to go to the top shelf for your tequila and will want to consider a reposado instead of a blanco. You will also need to skip the white orange liqueurs like triple sec and even Cointreau and go with the cognac-based Grand Marnier. The next tip is to go with fresh lime juice. With this formula you will have the ultimate Cadillac Margarita.
