Lovely drink that DH and I enjoyed on the porch while watching the sun go down on this warm summer day after working in the garden all day. I followed WillsMommy suggestion and added triple sec, also cut the tequila down to 1 ounce as that's plenty strong enough for us. It was so pretty to look at like a summer sunset and the taste was a pleasant mix of the fresh orange juice I used and the other ingrediants that really showed through. Made for Bite into the sweet taste of July.
Great! I throw in a shot of triple sec and it makes it a little smoother. Yum!
Great, but you can change this into a "sundowner" by subtsituting Captain Morgans dark rum for the tequila.
