I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Sammy-boys Margarita
...in your mind.

Sammy-boys Margarita

Makes 1 - go on, be selfish - The Margarita may have been born in Mexico in the 40’s, but it came of age in my kitchen in the late 80’s. Don’t change it, just make it. And please use a decent tequila. I have this theory - crappy tequila makes a crappy Margarita. Oh, and be a little careful, they’re kinda strong.


  • 2 ounces reposado tequila
  • 2 ounces Sweet & Sour - not Margarita mix
  • 1/2 ounce Grand Marnier, plus extra for serving
  • 1 splash Roses Lime Juice
  • 2 lime wedges
  • 2 orange wedges


  1. Add ice to shaker and put in tequila, sweet & sour, Grand Marnier, Roses limejuice and juice from one lime & orange wedge
  2. Place lid on shaker and shake well - you want it icy
  3. Add fresh ice to a glass and pour in contents from shaker
  4. Squeeze a new wedge each of lime and orange on top and drop wedges into glass
  5. Then float a little more Grand Marnier over the top and voila - life is good.
