If you search online fore Tijuana Taxi recipes, you’ll find some interesting versions. Most sound way too sweet for my liking but this recipe is perfection. I found it in my “Ultimate Bar Book” and chose to skip the simple syrup but included it as “optional” below. It’s a great alternative to a classic margarita and perfect for entertaining. Tequila is my favorite but you could switch it out for vodka for an equally as tasty drink!
- 2 oz reposado tequila
- 1 oz fresh lemon juice (about 1 lemon)
- 1 oz fresh orange juice (about 1/2 orange)
- 1 oz orange liqueur
- 1/2 oz simple syrup (optional)
- sugar for rim
- orange slice for garnish
Rub the rim of your martini glass with lemon wedge and rim with sugar. In a shaker add all liquid ingredients with ice. Strain and pour into prepared glass. Garnish with an orange slice. Enjoy!
Please drink responsibly.
