This recipe makes 5-6 shooters.

Prep Time: 3 minutes

Total Time: 3 minutes

Ingredients:

  • Ice for shaker
  • 6 oz. tequila
  • 1 cup (8 oz) orange juice
  • 1 oz fresh lime juice
  • finely grated rind from 1/2 of a lime
  • sugar
  • 5 strawberries or orange wedges

Preparation:

Place 5-6 large shot glasses in the freezer until frosty. Use a lime wedge to moisten the rim of each glass and dip the rim in a small plateful of sugar.

In a shaker combine tequila, orange juice, lime juice and lime rind. Shake vigorously for 10-20 seconds until ingredients are incorporated. Let it sit for about a minute to allow the lime rind to flavor the mixture. Add ice to shaker, shake again to cool and then pour into each glass. Garnish each glass with a strawberry (optional to use an orange slice to garnish)
