Orange Margarita

This orange margarita is a fun twist on this traditional drink. Made with fresh Cara Cara oranges and lime juice.

Cara Cara oranges are a type of navel orange. They’re a cross between two navels and were first discovered in the mid-70s in Venezuela. Now, they’re largely grown in California and reach their peak season between December and April.

Cara Cara Oranges have a bright orange, easy-to-peel, smooth skin. But the inside of the fruit is where they differ. Whereas the Navel has the typical yellow-orange flesh, the Cara Cara exhibits a red-pink color that resembles a grapefruit. They also differ in taste. The Navel is sweet and a bit acidic, but the Cara Cara has a sweet, tart flavor with notes of cranberry, blackberry, raspberry and rose.
