Light Wine Margarita

ThIrsty Thursday

Where has this year gone? Seriously, wasn’t it just yesterday that Jessica and Sarah were heading to their first day of the school year? …And to think that today was Jessica’s LAST (yes, I said last) day of high school. Oh my goodness! I was warned it would go fast, but I have to admit I didn’t quite believe everything I have been told from countless friends. I guess I better start taking better notes…

Well, since we are at the end of the year… this is the perfect time to share a great margarita recipe! I know, last week would have been more appropriate, but I didn’t plan well enough so you are getting a margarita recipe today. Below you will find a wine margarita that is a light, refreshing version of it’s tequila counterpart. The sweet wine selected is the new ONEHOPE Central Coast Reserve Riesling. This Riesling pairs well with the citrus fruit in the recipe and it also brings in the acidity and lime flavors to the margarita.

INGREDIENTS:
1. Lime wedges, to garnish
2. Salt, to garnish
3. 3 cups Central Coast Reserve Riesling
4. 3/4 cup frozen orange juice concentrate
5. 1/2 cup lime juice, freshly squeezed
6. 3 cups ice

DIRECTIONS:
Place salt in a plastic bowl, wide enough to fit the rims of margarita glasses. Rub each rim of the margarita glasses with a lime wedge. Then dip each glass into the bowl of salt to coat the rims. Set glasses aside.
In a blender, combine wine, orange juice concentrate, lime juice, and ice in blender. Crush until smooth. Divide into 4 salt-rimmed glasses, and garnish with lime wedge. Serve immediately.

Pair with shrimp or fish tacos!

Enjoy!

Sending you big (((hugs)))
