The Kaligrita

The Kaligrita is possibly my favorite drink next to the Jack and Coke.  This concoction of flavors is a nice twist on the classic Margarita.  I have made many margs in my day and they all turn out different.  I cannot emphasize how important it is to try and keep the measurements fairly accurate.

The Ingredients:

  • Hornitos Resposado Tequila
  • Mr. T’s Sweet and Sour Mix
  • 2 Limes
  • 2 Tangerines
  • 2 Oranges or Orange Juice
  • 4-6 Ice Cubes



Put the four Ice Cubes in the Shaker to start the chill.

4 shots of tequila into the shaker

4 shots of Mr. T’s into the shaker

Cut the limes and tangerines in half then squeeze the juice into the shaker

Cut the oranges in half and squeeze the Orange Juice into shaker or pour four shots of OJ into shaker

Shake, pour, and top glass off with two ice cubes.

The great thing about this margarita is you can really taste the flavor of the tequila without that strong kick at the end.  Two musts for this thing to taste great is the Hornitos tequila and the Mr. T’s sweet and sour.  Stay away from those pre made margarita mixes.  Take the time to juice your fruit and you will reap the glory.  Go home and make your Kaligrita now.

*If you want to play around with flavor you can add a shot or two of triple sec or you can top it off with some Gran Marnier or Contreau.

Happy Cocktails to you all-
