Ever wonder what a $100 margarita tastes like? To officially welcome the spring season, we present a one-of-a-kind margarita created by bartender Rael Petit at the NYC cocktail bar, Delilah, and made with the limited edition Gran Patron Platinum Tequila Margarita. We know Platinum is one of the rarest and purest precious metals in the world, and the limited edition Gran Patrón Platinum Tequila, a crystal clear, triple distilled and oak rested tequila which boasts a smooth and full-bodied flavor, is the perfect main ingredient for the first-ever Liquid Platinum Margarita.
