Give your next happy hour at home a walk on the wild-side when you sip on this Orange Black Pepper Margarita recipe made with fresh squeeze juice and a spicy homemade simple syrup! -[ultimate-recipe-jump]
I love a good margarita, traditional or funky flavors, it doesn’t matter. You can get really creative with not just your margarita flavors, but the salt rims too! In fact I created this Orange Black Pepper Margarita recipe with the salt rim in mind. I came across go lb. salt at the farmers market several years ago and their ingenious flavor combinations inspired me to branch out. The Sante Fe Rita rim-licks has organic cane sugar and sea salt flavored with lime and green chile. You really have to pair it with a drink that is both sweet and spicy!

Don’t let the Black Peppercorn Simple Syrup intimidate you either. Simple syrups are very easy to make. You are able to really add a great level of uniqueness to your favorite drinks! Also please, please, please use fresh squeezed orange juice. I realize that sounds like a lot of work, but it’s sooo worth it! If you are in a rush or want to make a big batch of Orange Black Pepper Margaritas check out the fresh pressed juice section at your local natural grocery store. A lot of the time you can find juice that was squeezed that day, if not on the spot.
