How do you make Maccarita?

Answered by Jarrod Smith

To make a delicious Maccarita, follow these step-by-step instructions:

1. Start by preparing the glasses. To salt the rims of two glasses, take half a lime and use it to wipe around the rim of each glass. This will moisten the rim and help the salt stick.

2. Next, pour out a generous 6-inch line of salt onto a small plate or saucer. Make sure the salt is spread out evenly.

3. Take one of the glasses and gently dip the moistened rim into the salt, rotating it to coat the entire rim. Repeat with the second glass. The salt will stick to the lime juice, creating a beautiful salted rim.

4. Now it’s time to prepare the cocktail itself. Gather the following ingredients: tequila, Cointreau (or any orange liqueur), triple sec, clementine juice, and lime juice.

5. Take a cocktail shaker and pour in 2 ounces (60ml) of tequila. If you prefer a stronger drink, feel free to add a little more tequila.

6. Add 1 ounce (30ml) of Cointreau to the shaker. Cointreau is a popular choice for a Maccarita, but if you don’t have it, any orange liqueur will work.

7. Next, pour in 1 ounce (30ml) of triple sec. This citrus-flavored liqueur adds a nice balance to the cocktail.

8. Add 2 ounces (60ml) of freshly squeezed clementine juice to the mix. Clementine juice gives the Maccarita a unique and refreshing twist, but if you can’t find clementines, you can substitute with orange juice.

9. squeeze the juice of half a lime into the shaker. The lime juice adds a tangy and zesty flavor to the cocktail.

10. Fill the cocktail shaker with ice. This will chill the drink and help to mix all the ingredients together.

11. Close the shaker tightly and shake vigorously for about 10-15 seconds. This will ensure that all the flavors are thoroughly combined.

12. Take the prepared glasses with the salted rims and strain the cocktail into them. The salted rim adds a nice contrast to the flavors of the Maccarita.

13. it’s time to enjoy your Maccarita! Sip on this delicious cocktail responsibly and savor the refreshing combination of tequila, orange liqueur, clementine juice, and lime juice.

Remember to drink responsibly and be mindful of your alcohol consumption. Enjoy your homemade Maccarita and have a great time!
