Satsuma Orange Margaritas recipe

Satsuma oranges are sweet and seedless, which creates a fragrant cocktail from food blogger Adrianna Adarme on the Fresh Tastes.


Yield: 4 cocktails


  • For the Glass Rim: 
  • 1 teaspoon satsuma orange zest
  • 2 teaspoons white granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt 
  • For the Drink: 
  • 6 fluid ounces tequila of choice
  • 4 fluid ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 16 fluid ounces satsuma orange juice (from about 12 oranges) 
  • 4 fluid ounces Cointreu or triple sec


  1. On a small plate, mix together the orange zest, granulated sugar and salt. Rub a juiced lime around each of the glasses' rims and dip them into the sugar/salt mixture. 
  2. To make one cocktail, add a few ice cubes to a glass. Pour in 1 1/2 fluid ounces of tequila, 1 fluid ounce of lime juice, 4 fluid ounces satsuma orange juice and 1 fluid of Cointreu or triple sec; stir to combine. Repeat with the remaining cocktails. Serve immediately.
