1/4 cup Grand Marnier
1/2 cup lime juice
1 teaspoon finely grated lime zest
1/4 cup sugar
Lime wedges
Coarse salt

Steeping the margarita mixture. Mix the tequila, Grand Marnier, lime juice, lime zest, and sugar in a glass or plastic pitcher until the sugar dissolves.

Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours (but no more than 24 hours). Strain into another pitcher.

Finishing and serving the margaritas. Rub the rims of 8 6- to 8-ounce glasses with a lime wedge, then dip the rims in a dish of coarse salt.
