Orange Margarita Recipe with Ginger Syrup and Lime

This Orange Margarita Recipe with Ginger Syrup and Lime may have the look of a traditional marg, but the taste veers far from the norm with elements of sweetness and warm spice.  With margaritas being wildly popular as the #1 cocktail in the US, this is a great party drink that’s quick to whip together yet makes a memorable impression.  Martini’s aren’t the only drink where you can get creative and play with sophisticated flavors, and doing so with a margarita is simply more fun.

Orange Margarita Recipe with Ginger Syrup and LimeWith many of my recipes I am flexible and say to go ahead and substitute in a different ingredient here or there.  This recipe however really does click when you use the exact ingredients listed.  Fresh squeezed limes for example taste so much better than bottled lime juice.  As for the Agavero Orange, it’s a tequila based liqueur that is different from any other on the market.  I’ve found that adding some of it into even a standard margarita will elevate the taste, and in a recipe like this where it’s the centerpiece will have people asking about it.  It’s up to you whether you’d like to share that information or keep it as your secret weapon!

The best things about Agavero Orange are that:
1). It’s made from a blend of 100% blue agave tequila

2). It gets its refreshing taste not just from infused oranges but also pure agave nectar, which is an ingredient that I often add to my margaritas anyway.

3). It’s from the Jalisco region of Mexico (alongside all of the best tequila in the world), and

4). The bottle is beautiful, one that we’re proud to put up on our bar.

Orange Margarita Recipe with Ginger Syrup and LimeYou can learn more about Agavero Orange here. Agavero Orange is a tequila based liqueur that is the perfect addition to any margarita recipe. It’s Gran Centenario tequila’s perfect match, and it’s your dance partner, party pleaser and top-secret ingredient.

The recipe also calls for Gran Centenario, a tequila that has been around since 1857 and goes down smooth every time.  I think what differentiates this tequila are the aromas and hints of tastes from citrus to aged oak.  This margarita’s other key ingredient is ginger, and in regards to that I’d just recommend buying some extra as it can go quick when mixing it into a drink, especially at a party.
