It is no secret that my go to beverage is a margarita. And now that Spring is upon us and with Summer quickly approaching, there are all these delicious fruits out there ready to be apart of my favorite warm weather drink!
The first time I had an Orange Margarita, I was sitting in a lounge chair on the beach and a server brought it to me. Now, when I make these at home, I try to pick a warm day so that I can sit on my patio, close my eyes, take a sip, and almost be transported back to that beach. The fresh citrus flavors of this margarita truly make it taste tropical. So, if you are wanting a light and fresh margarita this recipe is for you!
How to Make an Orange Margarita
Assemble your ingredients. For exact amounts see the recipe card below.
Rim your favorite glass with sugar and add in ice.
Pour the tequila, Cointreau, simple syrup, lime juice, and orange juice into a cocktail shaker over ice. If you do not have a cocktail shaker and are in need of one I recommend the Cocktail Shaker Bar Set from Amazon.
Shake it up.
Pour into your prepared glass, garnish with a lime and orange slice, and enjoy!
This recipe calls for 1 oz. of simple syrup; however, if you are more of a fan of the tangy flavor or do not prefer your beverages to be sweet then you can half the simple syrup to ½ oz. or even remove it altogether.
If you do not have Cointreau in your liquor cabinet, then you can use another orange liquor in it’s place.
