If you enjoy the taste of tequila, as we do, you’ll find that tangerine is a great pairing — its sweet tang doesn’t overwhelm the agave spirit. And here it helps to soften the lime for a margarita that’s refreshing and bright with citrus, but a little less puckery.
Our tip: Use a nice tequila. It doesn’t have to be an expensive bottle, but it should be smooth and flavorful. We’d suggest the Herradura Reposado or Cazadores Blanco. Both have a honey and lemon profile that would complement the margarita, but they’re interesting enough to sip.
