The Denver Broncos are going to the Super Bowl and “United In Orange” inspired these margaritas! The delivery of these tangerines could not have arrived at a better time.
I was born in Texas and grew up a Dallas Cowboys fan, but now live in Colorado and have lived here for over 15 years. It’s no wonder I am quickly becoming a Broncos fan. Speaking of the Cowboys I read a recent poll that the Denver Broncos surpassed the Dallas Cowboys as “America’s Team.” Pretty interesting, huh?
Ok, back to margaritas…these margaritas are made with Satsuma Tangerines. This juicy fruit was originally developed in Japan in the province of Satsuma. They are easy-to-peel, sweet, and seedless which my children love. They are a great addition to salads, stir-fry’s, stuffing’s, tarts, custards, and other desserts, but for me they were screaming playoff victory cocktails.
This fruit has thin membranes filled to capacity with liquid, which means less pulp and more of the prized bright orange juice. With winter citrus season these make the perfect winter margarita.
Have you ever tried a Satsuma Tangerine? If you can’t find any at your local grocery store you can order a box at Melissa’s Produce.
