How to make a Cara Cara Margarita


  • 2 ounces of fresh Pittman & Davis Cara Cara orange juice
  • 1 ounce orange liquor (i.e. triple sec)
  • 1 1/2 ounces tequila
  • Juice of ½ lime
  • A saucer of kosher salt
  • Cara Cara Orange wedges and mint leaves for garnish


Use a lime slice to wet the rim of your glass, then dip into kosher salt. Combine orange juice, triple sec, tequila, and lime juice into a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice, shake well, then strain into salted glass filled with ice. Garnish with a Cara Cara Orange slice and a few mint leaves.

Party Tip: You can easily increase the ounces in the recipe to cups, increase the lime juice to 2 limes, and stir in a cup of crushed ice to quickly make a pitcher of 4 drinks at once.
