Servings 1 drink

Ingredients
  

  • ice
  • 3 ounces White Tequila (Blanco) - Spicy, if Desired
  • 1 ounce Grand Marnier (or Other Orange-Flavored Liqueur)
  • 2 ounces Fresh Lime Juice
  • 1 ounce Rose Water (~ Make sure you use "food grade"!)
  • Splash of Cold Water (optional)
  • Extra Lime Slices, Pink Himalayan Salt, Rosebuds, Jalapeño Slices for garnish

Instructions
 

  • If you want to spice your tequila, add a slice of jalapeño to a bottle or jar. The tequila will take on the flavor quickly, so you only need to let it marinate for an hour or two (if that), when using a small jar.
  • Rim your glass with lime juice from the extra lime slices, and salt, if desired. Set aside.
  • Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, tequila, Grand Marnier, lime juice and rose water. Shake well. Strain into glass.
  • Garnish!

Notes

If you want to make "rosy" ice cubes as I did here, place 2-3 buds in each slot, and fill only ¼ of the way full, and freeze (This will keep the buds from floating to the top and sticking out.). Once frozen in place, top with the remaining water, and freeze until solid.
