Substituting tangerine juice for lime in a margarita is a revelation. The taste is gentler, a little sweeter, and far more aromatic—the tangerine flavor acts as a shadow for the orange liqueur, amplifying its presence. If you can get a Meyer lemon to garnish with (it adds a final burst of citrus perfume), go for it. If not, a regular Eureka lemon will do just fine.

Instructions

  1. 1Fill a chilled glass with ice. Pour in the tequila, tangerine juice, and orange liqueur. Squeeze the lemon slice into the glass and stir. Drop the squeezed lemon into the margarita as garnish.
