It’s National Margarita Day! ~ Kumquat Margarita

Kumquat MargaritaToday is National Margarita Day! This little known holiday can brighten up a dark rainy day in the middle of winter. 🙂

I had some kumquats left over in my refrigerator, and I thought this was a perfect use for them. If life gives you kumquats, make margaritas! 😉

Kumquat Margarita

Makes 1 drink

8 kumquats

1/2 ounce lime juice

1 1/2 ounces silver tequila

1/2 ounce orange liqueur

1/4 ounce agave nectar (or more if you would like it a tad sweeter)

Slice the kumquats and remove the seeds. Run one kumquat over the rim of a glass and dip the glass in kosher salt so the rim is evenly salted. Place all of the kumquats into a cocktail shaker and muddle them until their juice is released. Add the remaining ingredients and crushed ice. Shake until cold. Strain into the salt rimmed glass. Serve with more crushed ice.
