Tangerine Margaritas

Tangerine Margaritas #unitedinorange

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?

Satsuma Tangerines

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.

    What a great drink to cheer on our Broncos! This looks so refreshing and would go well with the other football treats you shared on the news segment. I’m guessing you’ll have a great Super Bowl party!!

      Can you believe I don’t have any Super Bowl party plans? Hoping someone will host and I’ll show up with margaritas ;)

    I love the color, it’s very inviting. I just had my Blue Margarita last Friday!

      Thank you. What did your blue margarita have? Sounds tasty! Maybe I need to make both for the big game.

    I haven’t seen any margaritas made by Seahawks fans! Seems to me like the Broncos are a shoe-in for the Championship!

    Thanks again for this recipe Yvette!! =)
