Tangerines are a fabulous fruit that should be used more often in cocktails and this Tangerine Margarita is a start. The fruit flavor is obtained by simply adding tangerine juice to the standard margarita mix, and if you would like, this mix can also be placed in a blender with a cup of ice for a quick frozen cocktail. With that, I do like to throw in some fresh tangerines.

What You'll Need

  • 2 ounces tequila
  • 1 ounce​ ​liqueur (orange)
  • 1/2 ounce​ limejuice juice
  • 1/2 ounce tangerine juice
  • Garnish: salt for glass rim

How to Make It

  1. Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice cubes.
  2. Shake well.
  3. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass rimmed with salt.
