This drink is so delicious and super easy. The lime adds the perfect amount of tart to just a little bit of sweet. It only has three ingredients so it’s easy to whip up for yourself after work, for guests before dinner, or guests who stop by unexpectedly.
Juice from one lime
2 oz tequila
2 oz blood orange liqueur (I used the Dekuyper’s brand, you can find it with the other liqueurs such as peach schnapps)
Combine all ingredients plus ice in a shaker. Shake until ingredients are well mixed (frothy) and strain into glass.
While on vacation last week we had a version of this drink. I ended up making it at home the same day I returned and have been drinking it since. I made my own version using stevia, since I’m avoiding sugar, so it works just fine with any sweetener of your choice.
The idea is to make your favorite lemonade whether that be from a mix, can, or fresh lemons (I used fresh lemons since I wanted to use my own sweetener) but use sparkling instead of still water when making it. Next, zest fresh ginger directly into the lemonade mixture. I used one tablespoon of fresh ginger to make a batch in a one liter carafe. I added in a few sliced mint leaves for flavor and color. This drink is DELICIOUS and ginger is great for you. It would also be fun to add a flavored vodka for an alcoholic version.
Will you give this drink a try? I hope so!
