AKA:

Maccarita, or Clementine Maccarita

Review:

Orange juice adds fruity dilution to what could also be called a Breakfast Margarita. Sir Paul McCartney (yup of Beatles fame) likes his Margaritas made with a splash of freshly squeezed orange juice (preferably clementine juice), hence this recipe is named in his honour.

Variant:

Macca himself likes to use clementine juice and a combination of triple sec and clementine (mandarin) liqueur. If you'd like to try this then omit the agave syrup and use:
45ml (1½oz) Tequila
15ml (½oz) Triple sec
10ml (1/3oz) Mandarin liqueur )
22.5ml (¾oz) Lime juice
15ml (½oz) Clementine juice

History:

A riff on the classic Margarita created in 2017 by yours truly.
