Grilled, sugar-coated limes and Traeger Smoked Simple Syrup make this Smoked Margarita stand out from the rest. Make a pitcher to share!
3 cups silver tequila
1 1/2 cups (about 12 limes) Fresh Squeezed lime Juice from grilled limes
12 lime wedges slit in center
1 1/2 cups Cointreau
3/4 cup Traeger Smoked Simple Syrup, or more to taste
1/2 cup turbinado sugar
1/2 cup kosher salt
When ready to cook, start the Traeger according to grill instructions. Set the temperature to 450 degrees F (set to 500 degrees F if using a WiFIRE-enabled grill) and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.
Cut limes in half, dip into turbinado sugar and place on preheated grill flesh side down.
Grill for 5 minutes or until you get some char. Remove limes from grill and juice them.
Add lime juice, tequila, Cointreau, and Smoked Simple Syrup to a pitcher. Stir to combine.
Place the Smoked Cocktail Salt in a low sided dish just big enough to fit the rim of the glass into.
Run the lime around each glass rim, dip into the salt and fill with ice.
Garnish with the lime wedge and pour in premixed margarita mixture. Enjoy!
