Orange tequila smash recipe

mandarin orange tequila smash recipe

This week, we have a special Chinese New Year recipe for 2017 - the year of the Rooster.

Using Mandarin oranges and reposado tequila with our Fiesta rimming salt, we call this smashing citrus cocktail "The Rooster's Call." 

Besides using a high quality spirit and a flavourful cocktail rimmer, the trick to making a fantastic cocktail is using real fruit juice. Any drink is a thousand times better when you ditch the pre-made mixes. This tequila smash is especially fun because you get to muddle up the oranges!



  1. Muddle one peeled orange in a mixing glass
  2. Add ice, 1.5 oz reposado tequila, .5 oz lime juice to mixing glass and stir 
  3. Pour 1 teaspoon of Fiesta cocktail rimmer on a plate
  4. Moisten the rim of your glass with a lime wedge and evenly dip your glass into rimmer
  5. Pour muddled mixture into rimmed glass and garnish with a lime wedge
