Amaretto Orange Margarita Cocktail

Amaretto Orange Margarita Cocktail

Tonight we made copy cat Chuy’s Chicka Chicka Boom Boom enchiladas Chicken enchiladas topped with a cheesy and roasted pepper sauce. Naturally we thought of margaritas or at least using tequila. Jill was telling me one of your friends had an “Italian Margarita” that used some Amaretto liquor. I remembered that so decided to try it out.
Now I didn’t have any limes left so departed from a true margarita by adding Ginger Ale.

It turned out great. I liked it because it wasn’t too sweet but yet the amaretto sort of added that special sweet note without the sugar. Hope that makes sense.

Ingredients (2-3 cocktails)
4 oz of Tequila
2 oz of Disaronna
1 can of ginger ale or sprite.
1 squirt of Agave
2 oz of Orange Juice

Mix everything but the Ginger Ale or Sprite in a blender with ice. Blend well and pour into a glass and top with Ginger Ale or Sprite and then stir it in and enjoy.
