Carl’s Cadillac Margarita

Carl created this recipe because the margaritas we’ve had in many bars add too much sugar or sweet & sour mix. This covers the flavor of the alcohol and makes the drink too sweet for our taste. There are other tequilas and orange liquors to choose from, but Milagro Tequila and Cointreau Orange Liquor are our favorites.

A word of warning: Don’t drink too many – these are pretty powerful!

A Mollie Stone’s Markets Original Recipe
Makes 1 drink


  • 1 shot Milagro Tequila
  • 1/2 – 1 shot Cointreau Orange Liquor
  • Juice of 1/2 lime


Completely fill a large martini glass with ice. Add all ingredients and mix lightly. Let sit for 2-5 minutes so that the  ice melts a bit. Enjoy!

*For even less sweetness, Carl sometimes changes the mixture to 1 1/2 shots of tequila and 1/2 shot of Cointreau.
