  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix cookie crumbs and butter in medium bowl until blended. Press mixture onto bottom and 1-inch up sides of 9-inch diameter spring form pan with 2 3/4-inch high sides. Refrigerate while preparing filling.
  2. Using electric mixer, beat cream cheese in large bowl until fluffy. Add 1 cup sour cream, 1 cup sugar, Grand Mariner, tequila, lime juice, and lime peel, and beat until well blended. Add eggs 1 at a time, beating just until blended after each addition.
  3. Pour filling into crust. Bake until center is softly set, about 50 minutes. Maintain oven temperature. Mix remaining 1 cup sour cream, 1/4 cup sugar and 1 tablespoon lime juice in small bowl.
