Looking for Pickled Parrot 24 Karat Gold Margarita recipe [Moved from Minneapolis-St. Paul Board]
Cuervo 1800 – 1oz Pour
Cointreau – ½ oz pour (or a little less)
Sour – Hard splash
OJ – Quick splash
Shake with ice then strain into salted martini glass
Grand Marnier – Float on top of finished cocktail (or you can mix it in the shaker with the rest of the ingredients should you choose)
Try just calling the restaurant during a quiet time (or stopping in). It would be very unusual to be denied a recipe. With their permission, you could post it here as there's someone else interested.
A bit of background: The Margarita has been discussed extensively on this board. The purists prefer a simple combination of high-quality all-agave tequila, lime juice, and orange liqueur. Others prefer various additions of other fruit juices, sugars (including agave syrup), removing the orange liqueur and such. Folks tend to hold their opinions pretty tightly. ;) The word "best" seems to make the knuckles holding those opinions turn white.
