Review:

A balanced (far from sweet) and flavoursome Margarita with the rich cognac and orange notes of the liqueur adding to this drink's depth of flavour.

History:

The Cadillac Margarita, with Grand Marnier in place of triple sec liqueur, became well known in the 1980s due to being marketed by the Southern California-based El Torito Grill chain of restaurants.
