Once a year cocktails

No -we don’t have cocktails just once a year, Ha Ha!, quite the contrary, however, once a year we harvest our green oranges from a potted tree on the patio and make cocktails.  I don’t know if it is our weather in North Texas or if these are a special kind of orange that stays green but they taste great.  They are ripe sometime in the fall and we can tell because they soften up.   We got about 7 or 8 this year and we squeezed them and added fresh lime juice and good tequila, simple syrup, shake over ice and poor – and voila delicious Green Orange Margatinis.   These green oranges make lots of juice and taste DELICIOUS!  We always look forward to our once-a-year green orange cocktails.
