Warmer weather has us preparing for sunny afternoons and balmy nights spent sipping on cocktails with good friends. We say goodbye to winter comfort foods and warming drinks and make way for light, fresh cocktails that scream summer.
For those fond of tequila-based cocktails, or new to them, Tequila Blu shares a new way to mix up your margaritas!
Fresh Orange Margarita
1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice*
3 tbsp sugar (preferably a fine sugar like caster sugar)
8 shots premium tequila –we suggest Tequila Blu.
7 shots triple sec or orange liqueur
Garnish with freshly sliced orange.
*For a variation on this recipe substitute the orange juice with blood orange juice
- Create an orange syrup by combining orange juice and sugar in a saucepan and simmering on low heat until mixture forms a syrup. Allow to cool.
- Combine all ingredients in a large jug and serve over ice.
- Alternatively, place enough liquid for one cocktail in a shaker with ice; shake and pour into a margarita glass.
