Smoky Margarita

from Grill Grrrl


  • 3 pounds limes and lemons plus a few oranges sliced in half
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup tequila
  • 1/4 cup triple sec
  • 1 cup simple syrup to taste
  • 1 pitcher full of ice


  1. Dip the sliced citrus in a bowl of sugar so they have a light coating. Grill the citrus on medium high heat until they have char marks. Let them rest until they are cool enough to be juiced .
  2. Fill your pitcher halfway full of ice, then add the tequila and trip sec. Add the juice to the ice/tequila mixture. Add the simple syrup in small batches until the proper sweetness is achieved.
