YOU DESERVE A DRINK: TANGERINE MARGARITA

  • 2 ounces tequila
  • 1 ounce Blood Orange Liqueur
  • 2 ounces freshly squeezed tangerine juice {about 3 small tangerines}
  • 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice {about 1 lime}
  • 1/4 ounce agave nectar {optional}
  1. Juice the tangerines and lime{s}. Don’t settle for the bland, bottled, pasteurized stuff.
  2. Sprinkle the citrus salt on a plate. Run alime wedge along the rim of the cocktail glass and carefully press the edge of the glass into the citrus salt.
  3. Carefully fill the cocktail glass with fresh ice.
  4. Fill a cocktail mixing glass with ice and add the tequila, blood orange liqueur, the juices, and, optionally, the agave nectar.
  5. Shake the mixture well, strain, and pour into the prepared glass.
  6. Garnish with a lime {or tangerine} wedge or wheel.
  • Always choose organic citrus and thoroughly scrub the exteriors, even if you are simply juicing the fruit. Again, take the time and “effort” to juice fresh fruit. The flavor is incomparable.
  • The Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur tastes delicious and gives this cocktail great balance; however, if you are unable to find this, feel free to substitute another orange liqueur.
