Green Margaritas

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: About 3 cups 1x

Description

Green juice meets tequila in this delicious (and easy!) green juice margarita recipe!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 1/2 cups green juice, *homemade or **store-bought (see note/recipe below)
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 3/4 cup tequila
  • 1/2 cup orange-flavored liqueur, such as Cointreau or Triple Sec
  • ice cubes
  • (optional: simply syrup to sweeten, if needed)

Instructions

  1. Stir all ingredients together until blended. If you feel the margarita needs sweetening, add simple syrup to taste.
  2. Serve over ice in sugar- or salt-rimmed glasses, garnished with lime wedges or slices if desired.
  3. *Just about any homemade green juice will work for this recipe. I made mine in a juicer with 3 oranges, 2 green apples, 2 inches fresh ginger, 2 limes, and 6 handfuls of fresh spinach. You can also puree the fruit in a blender or food processor and strain it through a cheesecloth or fine-mesh strainer if you do not have a juicer.
  4. **Any store-bought green juices will work for this recipe. I recommend going with a sweeter juice, but go with whatever you’d like.
