Okay, so occasionally I splurge and post a recipe that’s not the healthiest, but it’s the weekend, right? Here is a recipe for Orange Margaritas that’s great. I have to credit this beverage to Kay, who makes the best cocktails. We love going swimming at her fabulous pool, and she even makes non-alcocholic versions for the kids. This is a great summertime drink that’s perfect when you want something really easy but special and delicious.
1/2 cup orange juice with mango
1 cup triple sec
3 cups ice
1 cup tequila
4 frozen margarita glass
Salt if desired
Lime and orange slices
Nonalcoholic version: see below
1. In a blender, combine orange juice, Triple Sec and ice. Puree until completely blended. Add the tequila and puree for 2 seconds more.
2. Pour the mixture into the frozen margarita glasses topped with salt, if desired, and serve.
For nonalcoholic version. In a blender, combine 1 can frozen limeade, 3 cups water, 1/2 cup fresh orange juice and 1 cup ice. Blend well.
