Drink Recipe: Loaded Citrus Margarita

 

Hey everyone! Want another great drink recipe? (of course you do) Now I have grown into loving tequila, but I haven’t had it for a while if I’m going to be honest. This all changed when Missy and I met some great new friends! They made us some killer Tequila Sunrises and I knew I wanted more of this stuff in my life. Driving home from work today I thought of this twist on a classic recipe we all know and love: the margarita! Time to make a Loaded Citrus Margarita!

~ Ingredients ~

Lemons

Limes

1.5 Oz Silver Tequila

1 Oz Triple Sec

1/2 Oz Honey

Orange Juice

Salt

Sugar

Grenadine

Start by halving some of the lemons and limes and coating the cut ends with sugar. We’re going to caramelize them! You can do this by either grilling or with a hot fry pan cut side down. (don’t let it burn though!) ¬†Once those are ready squeeze two lime halves and one lemon half into a mixing cup. Add to this the tequila, triple sec, and honey and mix. Salt the rim of the glass by dipping it in grenadine and then the salt. Fill the glass with ice and set it aside. Add some ice to the mix cup and stir to cool the drink, transfer to the serving glass, and top with orange juice. Garnish with a lime wheel and you’re done!

Doesn’t it look delicious?! This is another one of those drinks that screams summer, so make some of these babies while you still can enjoy them by the pool. Cheers!
