Cadillac Margarita

A Cadillac Margarita is one made with high-quality tequila (typically a reposado) along with a Grand Marnier. Think of it as a higher-end classic margarita. Reposado tequila will have notes of oak and vanilla, making this margarita really stand out. Still, it’s simple to make and pairs perfectly with fish tacos and guacamole.
