Today we are combining two of my favorite drinks just in time for your fiesta tonight.
If you don’t know me by now one of the first things you should know is I’m obsessed with Mexican food, and second is Cinco de Mayo might be one of my favorite holidays.
But also I love the month of May. Not only do you have holidays like Cinco de Mayo and Mother’s Day but it is birthday galore in our family. Our daughter’s middle name is May named after her great grandmother’s middle name. Although her spelling was the traditional Mae, we chose it like the month since Amelia’s brother, dad, 2 granddads, great granddad, and great grandmother were all born in the month of May.
I know it sounds like I am getting off track (like usual) but spring is winding down (even though I have a spring salad coming next week). But here in the south we know it’s only a matter of time before the temperatures rise and everyone is taking pics of the temperature gauges in their car. So I am getting ready for summer with this Tequila Sunrise Margarita.
At first John was a little reluctant about me combining the two together since they are two classic cocktails. But after the approval of my other taste testers Tatum and Mallie I knew I had to perfect it right in time for Cinco de Mayo. And the girls gave it a thumbs up!
Tequila Sunrise Margarita
- 4 tablespoons Tequila
- 2 tablespoons Lime juice
- 1 tablespoon Triple sec
- Splash of Grand Marnier
- 2/3 cup Orange juice

- If you like a salt-rimmed glass, moisten the rim of your glass with a lime wedge. Then turn the glass over and dip into a small plate of coarse salt.
- Add all ingredients to a glass and stir.*
