This Outback margarita will quench and soothe—just what the doctor ordered. A mildly fruity on-the-rocks margarita is powerful ammunition in any home bartender's arsenal of party cocktails. I like tequila. Tequila is my friend. But watch yourself. If you get to the bottom of too many of these tasty pink drinks you might feel like a used pinata in the morning.

      1. If you want salt on the rim of your glass, moisten the rim of a 16-ounce mug (or glass) and dip it in margarita salt. 

      2. To make the drink, fill the glass with ice.

      3. Add the tequila, triple sec, then some sweet-and-sour mix and cranberry juice (in equal amounts—about 1/3 cup each should do it) to within a half-inch of the top of the glass. Stir.

      4. Splash a half shot of Grand Marnier over the top of the drink. 

      5. Add a wedge of lime and serve with a straw.

      Makes 1 serving.

I'm not a lover of sweet cocktails, however this one is on the border of being excellent...
