Ingredients for a Pink Cadillac Margarita

What makes a great cocktail is great ingredients. Spend the extra few bucks and buy top-shelf. The reason why the “Cadillac Margarita” is named after the classy luxury brand car is that you are to use top-shelf liquors. All luxury baby! 

  • Tequila – Tequila has such a unique flavor and every brand tastes different. For our Cadillac Margaritas, I used Patron Silver. 
  • Sweet & Sour Mix – You can use a store-bought mix or make your own.
  • Cranberry Juice Cocktail – For this pink margarita we used Simply Cranberry Cocktail. 
  • Grand Marnier – A top-shelf orange liqueur. Grand Marnier is a blend of Cognac brandy, distilled essence of bitter orange, and sugar. 
  • Fresh Lime – For fresh lime juice and for garnish.
  • Hibiscus Salt – For the Pink Cadillac Margarita, I used this gorgeous hibiscus salt that is rich in color and texture to compliment the cocktail.

How to get the Salt to Stick to a Glass

  • Rim your glass with a lime wedge by pressing down gently with enough pressure to release the juice from the lime wedge onto your glass.
  • Fill a shallow bowl with salt. Turn your glass upside down or roll one side of the glass in the salt.
  • The salt will stick to the lime juice on the glass.
