Summer for me is all about sitting out in the sun, reading a book, with a cocktail in hand. Granted with children this happens a hell of a lot less now but I do still like to make room for one of my favourite pass times. Today I am sharing with you this weeks cocktail of choice a delicious fruity yet refreshing Orange Margarita!
My most favourite thing about this Cocktail Recipe is that I get to use my favourite bottle of tequila in the world! This is the KAH Reposado Tequila from 31dover.com- how amazing does it look, every single one of these bottles are hand painted meaning no two are the same. The make the best table decorations at a party. Not only does the bottle look amazing it also contains some of the best high proof tequila you can find. As I have gotten older and wiser I have discovered Tequila isn’t just for shots followed by biting on a lemon and the most un attractive faces you have ever pulled, it is actually really nice you just need the decent quality stuff and it goes down like a dream!
Orange Margarita Recipe
1 Shot of KAH Reposado Tequila
1 Shot of Cointreau Orange liqueur
Combine all ingredients and shake, shake, shake until combined, I really liked it was a squeeze of lime juice in – I have made these a couple of times now and lemon works just as well. Remember the stronger you like the less orange juice you add. I left the crushed ice in on these ones as it was a particularly hot day, it made a kind of grown up slushy – lovely! If you aren’t a slushy lover strain before serving. ENJOY the perfect summer cocktail!
