Tres Citrus Rita

Once you make a margarita from scratch, you may never go back to a mix. Once you get on a kick of making a particular dish or in this case a beverage you start dreaming of various combinations. This combination seemed perfect for a margarita and it was wonderful! As you can see it is in between a frozen margarita and one on the rock. It actually has a “slushy” texture. However, you can shake up the ingredients and pour over ice for a margarita on the rocks or add more ice and have a frozen version. As with all of our margaritas, you are making them from scratch so choose a good quality tequila. I highly recommend one that contains 100% agave. See our recipe Simple Syrup if you would like to make your own simple syrup.

Ingredients

1/4 cup of Grand Marnier
1/4 of freshly squeezed lime juice
1/4 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4 cup of freshly squeeze orange juice
1/4 cup Simple Syrup
1/2 cup of 100% agave tequila
2 cups of ice
Garnish
Thinly sliced oranges
Kosher salt

Technique

Place all ingredients (except for garnish) into the blender and blend until smooth. Place kosher salt onto a small flat dish. Smear an orange, lime or lemon wedge around the rim of the margarita glass in order for the salt to stick to it. Salt the rim of the glass by dipping the rim into the salt and moving in a circular fashion until evenly coated. Pour margarita into glass and garnish with a slice of orange.
