  1. 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.

  2. Juice all of the citrus fruit. For personalizing each drink based on preference of taste, keep the juice in separate containers.

Recipe Notes

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.
