citrus margarita

when sam and i want a really refreshing adult beverage, this is our drink of choice. citrusy, tart and tangy. not overly sweet like your typical margarita. the fruit alone serve as the mix. because this drink is full of acidic fruit you also reap the benefits of lots of great vitamin c. enjoy!

1 orange/ halved + peeled

makes a tart margarita. can be sweetened with stevia or frozen strawberries.

+also try substituting coconut milk for the liquor. would make a dreamy smoothie.

This sounds perfect because I hate overly strict drinks. No simple syrup or extra sugar for me. Although as you know, I like my margaritas on the rocks. YUM! Let's go to La Parilla NOW!
