Ingredients

  • 1 –2 large Oranges (Juiced) or 4 ounces fresh juice

  • Lemon or lime – Splash of juice plus extra for lining the rim of glasses with salt

  • 2– 3.5 ounces tequila blanco/silver

  • 2 tbsp or more agave nectar (light)

  • Coarse sea salt for garnishing rim glass

  • Optional Ice

  • Chilled 10 to 14 oz sparkling citrus/flavored water or low cal soda (Like La Croix or Bai Bubbles grapefruit that’s sugar free)

  • Citrus slices to garnish


Method

  1. In a large container or bowl, juice your orange and lemon or lime juice.

  2. Mix in agave and tequila. Set aside.

  3. Take the sliced/cut lime or lemon wedge and moisten the rim with it. Then dip each glass in the coarse salt (if desired). Alternatively, you can also just add a splash of salt to the drink if you prefer not to dip the rim in salt (that's what we did!)

  4. Next Pour the tequila and juice mix evenly into the 2 glasses (with or without ice if you prefer)

  5. Top each glass with Add 5-7 ounces of sparkling flavored water or low cal soda into each glass. (10-14 ounces total)

  6. Garnish with a spritz of lemon juice and then garnish with a pinch of orange peel and/or herbs, flowers for festive look!
