Scratch Margarita

Scratch Margarita

Ditch the Sweet & Sour Mix, which is just artificially flavored processed sugar water. Let's make a batch of fresh margaritas from scratch!


  • 2 Oranges (peeled, then wedged)
  • 1 Small Lime (wedged, but no need to peel)
  • 1 Small Lemon (wedged, but no need to peel)
  • 3 to 4 oz of Tequila (added after juicing)


  1. Wash, peel the oranges, and wedge all produce
    • The oil in the orange peel is sour, so peel it first and discard the peel. Leave as much as the pith (the white part) in place. The lemon and lime peel oil tastes just like the juice, so you do not need to peel those.
  2. Juice all ingredients (alternate between lemon, lime, and orange)
  3. In a cocktail shaker or large glass with ice, pour 6 ounces of your fresh juice
  4. Add 3 ounces of Tequila to your drink and shake or stir
    • Omit the tequila for sparkling water for a tasty mocktail
  5. For additional sweetness, add 1/2 oz. to 1 oz. of Simple Syrup

Enjoy your Sana Drink!
