Not that many drinks in and I am already on my second margarita – this time served on the rocks.  Nothing beats a fresh margarita on a summer’s day (or December 31), and I needed to find a use for some fantastic home-made Sweet and Sour Mix that was taking up space in the refrigerator.

  • 3 ounces fresh sweet and sour mix
  • 1.5 ounces triple sec
  • 2.25 ounces gold tequila (Los Osuna)
  • 0.5 ounce Grand Marnier
  • lime wedge

Mix all of the ingredients in a rocks glass over ice (salt the rim if that is your thing).  Stir it up, squeeze in the fresh lime wedge and enjoy.

Dave’s Thoughts

  • Not too shabby this.  A long drinking alternative to the Golden Margarita
  • The home-made sweet and sour was probably the difference here.
  • The tequila blends in so well and compliments the flavors.

Tasting Notes:

  • Dave’s Rating: 8/10
  • Strength: 6/10
  • Sweetness: 6/10
  • Enjoy it on a summer’s day at the beach!
