THE RECIPE

Clementine Margaritas

Fresh squeezed and dangerously delicious

Seasonally appropriate citrus fruits evoke sunshine and warmer times- a definite contrast to the blustery cold days of winter! National Margarita Day on February 22nd comes at a pretty dreary time of the year, when everyone has had quite enough of winter storms and the woes they bring. Let’s be honest, there’s no better moment to cheer up with a bright, tangy seasonal margarita. A spritz of freshly squeezed clementine juice mixed with tequila, lime juice, and agave syrup makes this a zesty twist on the classic. Use up that box of clementines or heck, buy a whole new box and invite over some friends to celebrate the holiday. The mimosa’s kissing cousin, brunch is bound to get a little more interesting when tequila is thrown into the mix. Enjoy this cocktail on National Margarita Day or any day- we won’t tell.
