Citrus Mix Margarita

Citrus trees are among the most common fruit trees found in Bay Area backyards—predominantly lemons and oranges. For this recipe we used Meyer lemons, but any citrus available can be substituted. So pick, squeeze and blend up this easy margarita recipe—a refreshing California fall and holiday drink perfect for sipping during our “endless summers” and festive holidays.

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup Juice of 1–2 Meyer lemons, strained
  • Cold water
  • Sugar or agave syrup to taste
  • 1 ounce tequila (Makes a great fresh mocktail, sans tequila.)
  • 2–3 ounces cranberry juice
  • Garnish: lemon peel; crushed ice; salt or sugar for rim

Preparation

Combine tequila, cranberry juice, sugar or agave syrup with an equal ratio of lemon juice to water in a shaker with ice. Shake, then strain into the glass. Add lemon peel garnish as desired. Place ice in glass if desired.

OPTIONAL: To glaze glass rims, place a layer of salt or sugar on a small plate, moisten glass rims with a lemon rind and turn each glass upside down in the salt or sugar. Rotate once and turn back right-side up.

Cheers!
