The Orange Margarita recipe calls for 4-6 ounces orange juice, making it one of those cocktails you could actually enjoy for breakfast. Aside from that, there’s tequila, triple sec and a splash of lime.
As you can probably already guess, the big note in this drink is orange. If you use a decent quality, 100% agave juice tequila, it’ll have some other intriguing notes you can’t quite place – all vaguely citrus. This makes a nice alternative to the Screwdriver.
- 1 ounce tequila
- 1/2 ounce triple sec
- 4-6 ounces orange juice
- Splash of lime juice
Fill a glass with ice. Pour in the tequila, triple sec and orange juice. Stir the mixture and add the splash of lime juice, and serve.
