Homemade Orange Liqueur Margarita

Celebrate National Margarita Day with our homemade, no sugar added classic cocktail inspired by Kris Bordessa’s margarita! Orange liqueur is what makes or breaks a great margarita, but the amount of sugar is less than fab. Switch it up with our Purecane approved version, where the only sugar comes naturally from the orange! Sip, sip, HOORAY!
