Sweet Orange + Tequila Cocktail

Around The Worthey House, we like to try our hand at creating cocktails like our Sweet Orange + Tequila Cocktail is inspired by random things like, what’s on sale this week. Or what our favorite local greengrocer just got in. Basically, what we create is largely dictated by the availability of fresh ingredients, mood or whatever random creative impulse strikes my fancy at any given moment. 

Try our Sweet Orange + Tequila Cocktail. We called upon the ripe sweetness of navel oranges, about two ounces, one ounce of Triple Sec, an ounce and a half of tequila, and three ounces of tonic water. This fun cocktail will be great for a girl's night out, summer BBQ, or a fun way to chill on a hot summer's day!

For this one, we called upon the ripe sweetness of navel oranges, about two ounces, one ounce of Triple Sec, an ounce and a half of tequila, and three ounces of tonic water. That’s it, and it is pretty darn good. It’s more like the second cousin of a margarita, and instead of rimming the glass with salt we used the sweet crystals of finishing sugar. How bow dat?
