Orange-Lime Margarita

As I’m sure you’ve all noticed by now, it’s CINCO DE MAYO!  I have no idea what this holiday is about (feel free to educate me), but I do know that I love our Kitchen Sink Taco Nights and a good margarita.  In case you’re in the mood for a phenomenal margarita, then I figured I’d pass along a personal favorite recipe, originally from the always wonderful Emily over at Cupcakes & Cashmere.

Ingredients for this wonderful beverage include:

2 limes

1/2 orange

2 1/2 oz. tequila

1 oz triple sec

1/4 oz agave syrup

1/4 oz Grand Marnier


In a cocktail shaker with ice, juice 2 limes and 1/2 orange.  Add tequila, triple sec, and agave syrup.  Shake vigorously for 20 seconds.  Strain over glass with new ice cubes and float Grand Marnier on top.



How are you celebrating Cinco de Mayo?  Do you have a favorite type of margarita?

Create a great life!
