Clementine Margaritas

Usually I'm sort of a margarita purist - tequila, lime, triple sec. Done.  I usually don't even salt my glass.  Once in a while, though, I get a craving for something a little different and with almost 10 pounds of clementines staring at me, it was pretty much fate.  These are still super simple, just tequila, clementine juice, and lime juice.  The clementine is sweet and orange-y and effectively replaces the triple sec, though you could still add a splash to really bump up the orange flavor.  If I'm being totally honest, I usually add a little splash of water to all of my cocktails.  I'm kind of a wimp and don't love them too strong (at least not the first one!).

Give these a try before the cute little Cuties (or Halos, or whatever you have near you) are gone until next year.

Whoopee! Margaritas! No I haven't had one yet! Actually I have a margarita similar to this and it was waaaaaay too good. Thanx for the recipe. I am just starting to occasionally make mixed drinks at home.
