Elevate Your Drink This National Margarita Day

February 17, 2023

National Margarita Day is coming up on February 22, and this year we want to help you elevate the celebration from ordinary to Grand! Grand Marnier is taking cocktails to a more sophisticated level, straying from conventional luxury with a creative, unique and refined twist. The Grand Margarita puts an elevated spin on this classic cocktail by swapping out orange-flavoured liqueur for Grand Marnier. This highly refreshing cocktail pairs sour lime and earthy tequila notes, with Grand Marnier’s cognac and bitter orange flavour adding a refined smoothness and a heightened drinking experience. —Vita Daily

The Grand Margarita

1 oz Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge 
1.5 oz Espolon Tequila 
0.75 oz freshly squeezed lime juice 
0.5 oz Agave Nectar or Simple Syrup (Optional) 
Ice cubes 
Lime garnish 

Fill a wide, shallow dish with 2-3 mm of fine salt. Cut a lime in half at the width and rub around half of the rim of a margarita glass. Cut a thin, crosswise slice from one of the lime halves for garnish. Holding glass upside down, dip wet half delicately into the salt. Shake Grand Marnier, Espolon Tequila and lime juice with ice in a cocktail shaker. Strain into glass and apply lime garnish to rim.
