Thirsty Thursday: Whole Citrus Margaritas

Cold, winter months usually make me long for something light and refreshing to break up the heavy and hearty meals. It’s easy to forget that citrus season is now at its peak, so get ready to capture the full, brilliant flavor of winter’s bounty in an alcoholic beverage. Freshly juiced navel oranges, limes and lemons will bring a stunning citrus-y flavor to this margarita mixture of Cointreau, Triple Sec, and tequila. Though it may seem foolish to break out the blender for frozen margaritas mid-winter, there’s really no better time to turn out pitchers of these frosty Whole Citrus Margaritas.

Want to switch it up? This drink can be made on the rocks. And since freshness is key, the recipe can also be adjusted to whatever citrus fruit is freshest and available at your grocery store. Don’t be afraid to swap in tangerines, blood oranges, key limes or Meyer lemons.

Bottoms up, folks.

Whole Citrus Margaritas

Ingredients:

  • 4 navel oranges, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 2 lemons, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 2 limes, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup superfine sugar
  • 1/4 cup Cointreau
  • 1/4 cup Triple Sec
  • 1 1/2 cups good quality tequila (recommended: 100 percent agave)

To Serve:

  • 10 cups ice
  • Fine salt, for the rims of the glasses
  • 10 lime wedges

Directions:

Put the oranges, lemons, and limes through a juicer. Pour the juice into a large pitcher. Add the sugar and stir to dissolve. Then stir in the Cointreau, Triple Sec, and tequila.

To serve: Pour salt onto a small plate. Run a lime wedge around the top of each glass and dip the glass in the salt. Fill each glass halfway with ice and pour in the juice mixture. Garnish with a lime wedge and serve.
