Citrus Sunshine Tequila Cocktail

Published on Dec 11, 2017

Another winter special, with a health benefit.  Yes, you’ve heard this right… this is one way to get your dose of vitamin C.  Although it’s not a daily dosage, so use your judgment and drink responsibly. This cocktail boasts sweet, zesty flavors and a vibrant yellow color which comes from a variety of oranges, lemons, and limes. Reminds me of sunshine! Combined with tequila it creates one refreshing winter drink.  If you are a lover of mimosa, I guarantee you’ll love this one too.  This one is perfect for any brunch or party.

I used Naval oranges, juicing oranges, tangerines, lemons, and limes for this mix.  You can omit Crema de Mezcal, but I kind of like that smokiness it adds to the citrus flavors.
