Cara Cara orange margaritas (It’s been a whole year!)


[Tap, tap] Is this thing on?

Well, I did it. A whole year. Not a single post in 2013. I didn’t mean to go a whole year without blogging, but once I started not blogging it was hard to stop not blogging. Wait, what? I think I’m a little rusty…

Here’s where I should probably make a bunch of excuses, but it really comes down to this: I just didn’t feel like it. If I’d wanted to, I could have made time. Today, I actually felt like making time.

So, hopefully I’ll pop in here a little more often. I’ll shoot for more than once a year. That should be doable. Under-promise and over-deliver, right?


In the meantime, I offer you this margarita. Can you resist the draw of the overpriced seasonal oranges? I can’t. With a fruit bowl brimming full of Cara Cara oranges, I did the logical thing – juiced them and made cocktails. You didn’t think I was going to say I ate them, did you?


Cara Cara orange margarita recipe

Cara Cara oranges have a distinct pinkish flesh and while sweet, are also fairly tart. If you’re looking for a sugary margarita, this is definitely not it. 

Makes 1

  • 1-1/2 - 2 ounces tequila blanco (I used Cazadores)
  • 3 ounces fresh Cara Cara orange juice
  • 1/2 ounce lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce triple sec
  • Salt
  • Lime wedge
  • Ice

  1. Run the lime wedge around glass, then dip rim in salt.
  2. Fill shaker with ice. Add remaining ingredients. Shake and pour into glass.

  6. I've gone through this many times and luckily my friendship is only stronger because of dating slang, but I can see how it'd get messy. DEFINITELY agree that your friend will probably not listen to you - just gotta learn for yourself.
