Margarita Floats

These margarita floats are super refreshing and delish! Served on the rocks with a scoop of sorbet or sherbet, they are just perfect!

  • tajin or margarita salt for the rim
  • lime wedges
  • crushed ice
  • 4 ounces tequila (I like a blanco for this recipe)
  • 4 ounces freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 3 ounces simple syrup
  • 2 ounces Grand Marnier or other orange liqueur
  • 2 to 4 scoops of lemon, lime or orange sherbet/sorbet (or a swirl)


  • Use a lime wedge to rim 2 glasses, then dip the rims in the tajin (chili lime seasoning) or salt. Fill the glasses with crushed ice.
  • Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the tequila, lime juice, simple syrup and grand marnier. Shake for 30 seconds, until the mixture is frothy. Pour the mixture evenly between the 2 glasses. Add in 1 or 2 scoops of sherbet. Serve!
