Ugli Fruit Margaritas

The sweet juice of the Ugli fruit tastes similar to a tangerine. With the addition of the other citrus fruits, the combination of flavors was just the zing I was hoping for. I have to say this margarita recipe is by far my favorite. And after doing some research, I found that Ugli fruit is an excellent source of vitamin C and fiber and contain fewer than 40 calories, about the same as a grapefruit.

  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • 2 limes juiced
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 lemons juiced
  • 2 oranges juiced
  • 3 to 4 Ugli Fruit also known as Uniq Fruit, juiced
  • 1 cup tequila preferably Reposado
  • 1 cup Cointreau liqueur Grand Marnier, or triple sec


  • Combine the sugar and water and heat just long enough for the sugar to melt. Remove from the heat as soon as the sugar has dissolved.
  • Refrigerate the simple syrup and allow to cool completely before adding to the other ingredients.
  • In a pitcher combine simple syrup with the lime, lemon, orange, and Ugli juices and zest and refrigerate until flavors meld, 4 to 24 hours.
  • Add tequila and orange liqueur and stir.
  • Salt rims of glasses by rubbing rim with lime slice and dipping the rim into some margarita or kosher coarse salt.
  • Fill glasses with crushed ice and fill with the Ugli margarita mix.


if you really wanna go the skinny route eliminate the addition of the simple syrup and the orange-flavored liqueur. Most margarita mixes are loaded with sugar—not to mention a long list of other ingredients you’ve probably never heard of.
