        I use Cuervo Gold, Cointreau, simple syrup instead of sugar, fresh limes and then top each one off with a drizzle of Grand Marnier.

          brklynbobby, i know you did not ask but may i suggest that instead of simple syrup you use agave nectar. it's not quite as sweet as sugar and made from the same plant as tequila.

      If Brklynbobby is not home, the margarita at Stone Park Cafe is good. I haven't been there in a while, but it was on the cocktail menu, fitting called "El Mejor Margarita"

        that's good to know. i just had the margaritas at Hecho in Dumbo and they were excellent. actually all of our food was excellent. it might be one of my new favorite spots.
