The Presidential Margarita adds brandy to the usual tequila, Cointreau and lime juice mix. The result is a slightly sweeter and more full-bodied margarita. This drink is particularly nice after dinner or in the evening because it’s a fairly stiff drink, good for when you’re ready to kick back and relax.
- 1 1/2 ounces tequila
- 1 1/2 ounces brandy
- 1 1/2 ounce Cointreau
- Juice of 1 lime
Rim a margarita glass by rubbing the lime around the edge and then pressing it into a saucer of coarse kosher salt. Pour the other ingredients into a cocktail shaker full of ice and shake well. Strain the mixture into the glass and garnish with a lime wheel.
