  • 1 cup Tequila Cazadores Blanco
  • 2 ¼ cups fresh-squeezed sour orange juice (about 4 pounds oranges)
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • Lime slices, for garnish
  • Sal de gusano, for the rim (optional)

Combine orange juice, tequila, and sugar in a blender. Blend on high until sugar is dissolved. Transfer to a pitcher and chill until ready to serve. Rub a lime slice around the rim of 6 cocktail glasses. Dip each glass in Sal de Gusano, your favorite cocktail salt, or kosher salt. Fill each glass with ice and pour margaritas over.Add a lime slice and serve. 

Note: Sour Orange Juice Substitute: Add 1/4 cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice for every cup of sweet orange juice. So for this recipe you would use 1 ¾ cup orange juice and 1/2 cup lemon juice
