I'd been searching for a really good margarita recipe for some time, and this one is hands down the best I've ever made! Rather than using Grand Marnier (which, at $43 a bottle at my liquor store, is too $$$ for my blood), I substituted Gran Gala, an Italian import was half the price. The important thing is finding an orange liqueur made with brandy, and this one fit the bill perfectly. Cointreau would work as well, but costs almost as much as Grand Marnier. The end result? Smooth and delicious. I'll be making these often! One other tip: do not skip salting the rim of the glasses. This is an essential step in a good margarita - the salt perfectly contrasts with the sweet-and-sour flavor of the beverage.
