    Default Tangerine Margarita...

    Didn't have limes, but had a bag of tangerines, so decided to give it a try:

    Juice from 4 fresh-squeezed tangerines
    2 oz. Blanco tequila (I used Cuestión)
    1 oz. TripleSec
    1 tbsp Agave Nectar
    Add a little water.

    Shake over ice and serve. Strain if you don't like pulp.
    Garnish with slice of tangerine.


    It is very sweet,, I might try some bitters or sour mix next time.

    With the abundance of fresh tangerines available here in Florida, I use them frequently in agave spirit cocktails. Because they are so sweet, I seldom find a need to add any triple sec or agave nectar. What I usually do is add a splash of fresh lime juice (I prefer key limes) in place of any sour mix. This tends to balance out the sweet/tart aspect. If is is not sweet enough, you can always add a squeeze of agave nectar. OBTW...I never use triple sec only because it masks the flavor of the tequila...IMHO of course!
    Sip & Savor... please don't shoot!

    Salud, Jim

    Yep. I'm going to ditch the added "sweetness" and go for lime/tangerine mix next time... I was just out of limes this time (I know, shame on me).
