(adapted from Martha Stewart)
4 cups of low pulp orange juice
2 cups of Tequila (I used what they call Blanco or Silver Tequila)
12 tablespoons of fresh squeezed lemon juice
3 ounces of grenadine
Ice for serving
Lemon peels for garnish
Pour orange juice, lemon juice and Tequila in a large pitcher. Add grenadine and shake. (you could wait to add this to each individual cup, but I liked the flavor it added combined in with everything)
This is how I served it:
1. I filled my cups about half full with ice.
2. Put about 1 cup of Tequila mixture over ice.
3. Top off with about 1/4 cup of Sprite.
4. Garnish with a lemon peel. To do this I took a potato peeler to the lemons I squeezed and peeled off slices of lemon peel. I then twisted them before putting them into the cups to release the oils and add another zest!
***These are not exact measurements. I am so bad at measuring ... sorry! I really just did the first one to test how it would taste and then judged it going forward. If you have any questions feel free to ask!***
You could half this recipe too, I just had a lot of people so I needed more. They were so yummy!! Some people even said that you could taste the alcohol...that's dangerous!!! :o)
