Whole Citrus Margarita

Ingredients

  • 4 navel oranges, cut into 3/4 pieces
  • 2 lemons, cut into 3/4 pieces
  • 2 limes, cut into 3/4 pieces
  • 1/2 cup superfine sugar
  • 1/4 cup Cointreau
  • 1/4 cup Triple Sec
  • 1 1/2 cups good quality tequila (recommended 100% agave)

To Serve

  • 10 cups ice
  • Fine salt, for the rims of the glasses
  • 10 lime wedges

Directions

  1. Put the oranges, lemons and limes through a juicer.  Pour the juice into a large pitcher.  Add the sugar and stir to dissolve.  Then stir in the Cointreau, Triple Sec and tequila.
  2. To serve: Pour salt onto a small plate.  Run a lime wedge around the top of each glass and dip the glass in the salt.  Fill each glass halfway with ice and pour in the juice mixture.  Garnish with a lime wedge and serve.

Chef’s note: Tangerines, meyer lemons and key limes all have amazing flavor if you can find them.
