8 ounces kumquats
1¼ cups water
¼ cup sugar
¾ cup tequila
½ cup lime juice
¼ cup Grand Marnier
Combine kumquats and water in a blender and puree until mostly smooth. Pour the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a medium saucepan, pressing on the solids to extract as much liquid as possible. Add sugar and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until thick and syrupy, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool to room temperature, about 15 minutes, then refrigerate until cold, about 1 hour.
Mix tequila, lime juice and Grand Marnier with ⅓ cup of the kumquat reduction. Serve over ice in salt-rimmed glasses, if desired.
To make ahead: Refrigerate kumquat reduction (Step 1) for up to 3 days.
