Since there's really no better accessory than a cocktail in your hand, each week
Gallo Blanco's Sueño Mojado is a classy take on the tired sweet-and-sour margarita. The name roughly translates to "wet dream," but all double entendre aside, this salty cocktail is a thirst quenching dynamo. Clearly it was inspired by one mixologist's dreams of what margaritas could aspire to when freshly squeezed citrus and premium tequila were added to the mix.

2 oz. El Jimador Blanco Tequila
1/2 oz. Grand Marnier to float
Fresh margarita mix (recipe below)
Fresh margarita mix is really what makes this cocktail shine and it's easier to make than you may think. Step one: go on a citrus raid of your neighborhood and collect several oranges, lemons and limes (or skip the delinquency and buy them). Step two: Juice a couple of each type and add sweetener to taste (agave nectar anyone?).
Add the tequila and margarita mix to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously and pour the entire icy contents into a salt rimmed glass garnished with a lime wedge. Float the Grand Marnier atop your fresh margarita and embrace this sweet and salty dream of a margarita.
