I’ve been on a bit of a margarita kick lately, and I was anticipating enjoying one on the deck today with the sun shining.
I started to get the ingredients out only to realize I was totally out of triple sec and cointreau. OK. Plan B.
6 ice cubes
1-2 tbsp elderflower concentrate
2 oz mandarin vodka
1 juicy lime
Add first 4 ingredients to shaker, shake and pour (including ice cubes) into large glass. Top with 1/2 can club soda and some mint sprigs.
It was clean, juicy and fresh tasting. Quite tart, it could be sweetened by adding some agave nectar to the shaker. I liked it this way though.
