Molly Cocktail: The Margarita’s Stronger Cousin

We have a local Mexican restaurant called Little Tampico that has a great Tequila bar.  One of the cocktails they offer is called a “Molly”.  I’ve never had one anywhere else, and couldn’t find one Googling, so I had to reverse engineer the recipe.   They’re good, but they’re less sweet and more alcohol than most margaritas.  They can be served with or without the Gran Marnier float of a Cadillac Margarita too for even more kick.

Here’s the basic recipe:

2 1/2 parts Tequila.  I prefer Jornitos for my Tequila Cocktails.
1/2 part Lime Juice
1/2 part Orange Juice
1/2 part Simple Syrup (or less to taste)

Use a jigger or mixing cup to measure the parts.

That’s all there is to it.  The drink basically substitutes Tequila for the orange liquer (Triple Sec on cheap margaritas to Cointreau or my favorite, Padron Citronge) of a normal Margarita.  To keep the orange flavor, we have some orange juice.

Very tasty, but one tall one is enough!
