#DOTW: Margarita de Naranja

The Margarita is forever my favorite cocktail. Fruity, salty with a touch of sour, it just has everything, you can’t go wrong. You can make versions with fruit, or even with savory ingredients, it’s all good. This one is an orange version, and it’s easy to assemble. You can make larger quantities at a time for groups like dinners and parties. It’s fun and delicious!

What you’ll need:

  • 2 oz Patron Silver (or quality silver tequila of your choice)
  • 1 oz Cointreau
  • 1/2 oz fresh lime juice
  • 1 1/2 oz San Pellegrino Aranciata

Wet the rim of a highball glass and dip it in rock salt to create the rim, then fill the glass with ice. In a martini shaker combine the tequila, cointreau and fresh lime juice. Pour over the ice in the highball glass, then fill the glass with San Pellegrino Aranciata. Garnish with an orange slice.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
