Still basking in the glow of kumquat season (and my everlasting love of tequila) I woke up Saturday morning on a mission to come up with a top-notch kumquat margarita recipe.

That was a long day.

But I was successful and here’s what I did for one kumquat margarita:

Kumquat Margarita

  • Yield: 1

Ingredients

4 kumquats

ice

2 ounces silver tequila

3/4 ounce orange liqueur (I use Cointreau)

1/2 ounce lime juice

more ice, crushed if possible

Instructions

Cut the kumquats into quarters lengthwise and muddle in the bottom of a shaker. Muddle it well – 20-30 seconds to get the rinds really broken up.

Add ice cubes, tequila, orange and lime juice. Shake for 60 seconds.

Strain into a glass filled with crushed ice

Notes

To double the recipe:

8 kumquats

4 ounces tequila

1 1/2 ounces orange liqueur

1 ounce lime juice
