Tangerine Tequila Punch: Football Foodie Kickoff!
Recipe type: drink
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4-6
  • 1½ cups tangerine juice, strained (2½ pounds of tangerines yields approximately 1½ cup juice)
  • ¼ cup lime juice, strained (1 very large lime or 2 medium limes)
  • 1½ cup tequila, preferably reposado tequila but a blanco is fine
  • ¼ cup Cointreau or preferred triple sec brand
  • ¼ cup simple syrup
  • 2 cups ice, plus more for serving
  • Lime slices for serving
  1. In a pitcher or punch bowl with ice, mix together tangerine juice, lime juice, tequila, Cointreau and simple syrup.
  2. Serve over ice with thin lime slices.
Firmly roll the tangerines and limes on the counter for easier juicing. Simple syrup is made by gently boiling together equal parts sugar and water until the sugar dissolves. Cool to at least room temperature before using. Simple syrup can be stored in a clean jar for up to a month in the refrigerator.
