Happy Cinco De Mayo! It's time to step up your drink game to celebrate.  If you're like me, when you make margaritas you just run across the street to Albertson's and pick up the pre-mixed stuff, but if you're feeling adventurous try mixing up one of these delicious cocktails!

  • 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons tequila
  • 2 tablespoons orange liqueur (recommended: Grand Marnier)

Special Equipment

Combine sugar, lime juice, water, lemon juice and orange juice in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Once cool transfer to a blender with tequila, orange liqueur, and lime wedge and process until smooth. Pour into the cups and cover the top of each cup with foil.
