  • 3 oz. (2 shots) tequila
  • 1.5 oz. (1 shot) orange liqueur I used Cointreau.
  • Juice of 1 1/2 limes, freshly squeezed
  • Juice of 1/2 orange, freshly squeezed
  • 4 oz. sparkling water Try a flavor if you want! La Croix would work well here.
  • 1 tbsp. Course ground salt for rim (optional)
  • Lime wedge for garnish (optional)


  • Line rim of favorite adult beverage glass with lime juice from wedge.
  • Dip glass rim into course ground salt to get a thin coating along edge.
  • Mix first 5 ingredients together in salt rimmed glass. Add ice until glass is full.
  • Enjoy safely!


Makes 2 drinks.
Each drink is approximately 4 grams of natural sugar. You can lower that amount by lowering the amount of orange liqueur. Just be careful as it will get sour quickly!
