The Best Tangerine Margarita cocktail recipe

The Best Tangerine Margarita cocktail recipe

It’s a tangerine. It’s a margarita. It’s a…tangerita?

Margaritas come in all sorts of yummy tropical flavors, but one of the most tragically underrated options is the star of the legendary House of Citrus: tangerine. Though often overlooked, this tiny but mighty member of the citrus family packs a punch of flavor that leaves traditional margaritas in the dust.

If you’ve been looking for a way to shake up your marg routine, you might want to hold onto your wig, because we’re about to serve up the best tangerine margarita cocktail recipe you’ve ever seen!

But first… What’s the difference between a tangerine and an orange anyway? Tangerines are typically sweeter than oranges, meaning they can balance out that tart, sometimes-a-little-too-sour taste you’re bound to find in an orange margarita. So, if you like to live on the sweeter side of life, a tangerita might just be the perfect drink for you.

Shaking Up Your Tangerita

To make a mouthwatering tangerita of your own, all you’ll need is a few ingredients from your local grocery and liquor stores:

  • Tequila.
  • Orange liqueur.
  • Fresh tangerine juice.
  • Lime juice or wedge.
  • Salt or sugar for rim (optional).

When it comes to mixed drinks, everyone’s taste is a little different. We recommend starting out mixing equal parts of tequila, tangerine juice, and lime juice, with a dash less of the orange liqueur. Shake it up well with some crushed ice and serve in your favorite marg glass, rim salty or sweet. We won’t judge.

Still not sweet enough for you? Make it a little extra juicy. Or maybe you’re missing some of that signature orange tartness? Splash in some more orange liqueur, and bam! Bartenders around the world? Out of business the second you grabbed that shaker!
