Perfect Margaritas from the Cocktail Queen!

INGREDIENTS (for 4 so you will need to round up!)
2 limes
50 g white sugar
45 ml water
235 ml premium tequila
30 ml brandy-based orange liqueur (such as Grand Marnier®)
1 lime, sliced into rounds
coarse salt

Grate the zest of 2 limes into a small bowl. Cut the zested limes in half, and squeeze the juice into a measuring cup to get 1/2 cup. Combine lime zest, lime juice, sugar and water. Cover, and refrigerate for approximately 24 hours.(Although we didn't!!)

Before serving, stir in the tequila and Grand Marnier. Rub rim of 4 glasses with sliced lime, and dip into salt. Take another slice of lime, cut in half, slice under skin of lime to halfway point, and place on glass for garnish.
