The Highland Margarita

I was going to append this to my How to Celebrate Margarita Day, but then thought...hell no! Anything called a Highland Margarita deserves it's own thread.


Highland Margarita recipe

1 1/2 oz Tequila
1/2 oz Grand Marnier orange liqueur
1/2 oz Laphroiag Scotch whisky
sweet and sour mix

Pour the tequila, Grand Marnier, Drambuie and sour mix (to taste) into a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice cubes. Shake well. Pour into a salt-rimmed margarita glass, garnish with a slice of lime, and serve.

  1. Ok, I have to rename this the Islay Margarita to appease the Politically Correct crowd :P

    The drink itself is actually pretty interesting. It mixes well and has a unique aftertaste where the peat smoke intermingles with the orange of the Grand Marnier to give a fruity finish.

    While I wouldn't drink it often, it is an interesting cocktail if I were not in the mood (I know...when would that ever happen?) for a dram.
