Amaretto Margarita

Amaretto Margarita

The margarita is a hard act to follow.  When fresh citrus is in season, this recipe is a good reason to branch out.  Fresh orange juice stands in for the more typical orange liqueur, while a healthy dose of amaretto softens everything right up. 


  • 2 oz fresh orange juice
  • 1¼ oz fresh lemon juice
  • 1½ oz Amaretto 
  • 1½ oz Tequila Joven


  1. Rim a rocks glass with salt.
  2. Combine the orange juice, lemon juice, Amaretto, and tequila in a shaker over ice.  Shake until well-chilled, then double strain into the rocks glass over ice.
