Servings 1 Margarita
- Sugar for the rim, or salt
- Crushed ice
- 1 ounce club soda chilled
- 1/2 ounce simple syrup
- 2 ounces tequila chilled
- 1 ounce lime juice

To make a simply syrup, in a small pan, combine equal parts sugar and water over medium high heat. Add the zest of one orange and one lime. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Cool and strain.
Juice all of the citrus fruit. For personalizing each drink based on preference of taste, keep the juice in separate containers.
Wet the rim of a chilled glass with lime juice. Invert glass and dip into sugar. Fill glass with crushed ice.
In order, pour the following over ice: club soda, simple syrup, tequila, lime, orange juice.
Stir gently, and top with a splash of carbonated fruit punch soda.
Due to the wide variations in fruit juice, portions and renegade mixology, the nutritional value of this cocktail is only an estimate.
To make a large batch, we used a total of 8 oranges, 8 limes. For the simple syrup we used 1 cup of water to 1 cup of sugar. We purchased a fifth of tequila.
