When made with homebrew Orange Kumquat Liqueur this Margarita recipe will have a unique flavor you would swear would only be found at a high class resort hotel. If homemade Orange Kumquat Liqueur is not available, you can use Cointreau as a substitute. Use only high quality, 100% blue agave tequila for this cocktail like Puerto Vallarta Blanco (photo right). Don’t use "gold" tequila. Use fresh squeezed lime juice for best results.
- 3/4ths part Fresh Lime Juice
- 1 part Orange Kumquat Liqueur (or Cointreau)
- 1 part 100% Blue Agave Tequila
Add fresh lime juice, Orange Kumquat Liqueur (or Cointreau) and Tequila into a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake vigorously until chilly. Serve in a salt rimmed Margarita glass (or Martini glass as shown below).
