An Italian inspired take on a classic margarita. Swapping in limoncello gives this cocktail an Italian essence that will transport you to the Almafi coast right at home. 



1 oz fresh lime juice

1 oz fresh blood orange juice (or pomegranate juice if not in season)

1 oz limoncello

2 oz blanco tequila

Club soda, top top (optional)


  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add in lime juice, blood orange juice, limoncello and tequila. Shake for 20-30 seconds or until the cocktail shaker is well chilled. 
  2. Pour into a low glass with ice, top with club soda if desired and garnish with a blood orange slice.


*If blood oranges are no longer in season, feel free to swap in pomegranate juice for a similar deep flavor and color.
