Cara Cara Margarita

Servings 1 cocktail


  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • zest of one Cara Cara orange
  • zest of one lime
  • some extra lime wedges
  • 2 ounces 1/4 cup Cara Cara orange juice, approximately the juice of one orange
  • .5 ounce 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1.5 ounces tequila
  • .5 ounce triple sec
  • crushed ice


  • To create an orange-lime salted rim, combine the kosher salt with the zest of the orange on a flat dish. Work the orange zest into the salt using your fingers a bit. The salt will become orange. Sprinkle the lime zest in and set aside.
  • Rub the lime wedge around the rim of a serving glass. Dip the glass into the salt mixture, twirling it around a bit to cover the rim.
  • In a shaker, combine the orange and lime juices with the tequila and triple sec and just a bit of crushed ice. Give it a good shake and pour into serving glasses over additional crushed ice.
