I had originally planned for these super delicious little margaritas to be shared last week.
I had made a batch of my lemonade and had a little left over.
And since I’m a margarita addict,
I thought why not lemon instead of lime.
Lemonade + tequila = perfect combo
after looking at the pictures that I took of them I decided that maybe I shouldn’t drink margaritas while photographing them!!
So I decided to sacrifice and make a few more of these tasty treats so that they could be shared this week.
I know, I’m a giver.
**NO MARGARITAS WERE CONSUMED IN THE TAKING OF THESE PICTURES**
(I waited until I took the pictures and then they were downed!!)
Makes 1 margarita
3 ounces lemonade
3 ounces tequila (I used Casa Noble Silver–my fave)
1 ounce Grand Marnier
a few dashes of Orange Bitters
Garnish with lemon sugar**, salt, and a slice of lemon.
Combine the lemonade, tequila, and Grand Marnier in a cocktail shaker full of ice. Mix well and pour into a glass rimmed with lemon sugar, salt, and a slice of lemon. Add a few dashes of Orange Bitters.
Add a little more lemon juice if your lemonade is overly sweet.
**Lemon Sugar-combine 1/4 cup sugar with zest of 1 lemon. Allow to sit for 1 week.
