1. **Prepare the Salt Rim:**
Fill a wide, shallow dish with 2-3 mm of fine salt.

2. **Rim the Glass:**
Cut a lime in half and rub around half of the rim of a margarita glass. Cut a thin wheel from one of the lime halves to use as a garnish. Holding the glass upside down, delicately dip the wet half into the salt.

3. **Shake and Strain:**
In a cocktail shaker, combine Grand Marnier® Cordon Rouge, Espolòn Tequila Blanco, fresh lime juice, and agave nectar with ice. Shake well and strain the mixture into the prepared glass.

4. **Garnish and Serve:**
Place the lime garnish on the rim of the glass, and you’re ready to savor the premium Grand Marnier Margarita.

Pro Tip:
Place the glass into the freezer before pouring your drink to ensure the chilliest of cocktails. This extra step enhances the overall drinking experience, making each sip refreshing and delightful.
