Once in a while, we like to stray away from the traditional margarita combination of tequila, lime juice, and orange liqueur for something a little different. By changing up each of the components just a little bit, you can end up with an entirely new creation, like this Kiss of Light Margarita. Using a good blanco tequila as the base, Renee adds a splash of Licor 43 – the 43 ingredient Spanish liqueur – instead of triple sec and any other sweetener. With its sweet vanilla, citrus, and spice flavor, the Licor 43 adds a unique depth to this cocktail turning an otherwise classic drink into something special. Instead of using lime juice alone, we also love that Renee finishes this drink with a squeeze of seasonal blood orange juice for a beautiful color. Is it happy hour yet?
