Serving: Makes two cocktails
Valencia or Navel Orange 3oz fresh-squeezed juice
Star Ruby Grapefruit 3 oz of fresh-squeezed juice
Lemon 2-3 Tbsp of fresh-squeezed juice
3 oz of tequila
1 oz of triple sec
Lime, lemon, orange wedge for garnish

Alternatively, add 2 oz of fresh-squeezed tangerine juice.
The nice thing about this recipe is it can be made ahead in a pitcher. Instead, use 1 cup of fresh-squeezed orange juice and 1 cup of fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice. Add 3 oz of fresh-squeezed lemon juice or tangerine juice. Add 8 oz or 1 cup of tequila and 4 oz of triple sec. Mix well and leave in the fridge until ready to pour. Juice may settle if it sits too long, be sure to stir or mix well, before pouring over prepared glasses.
