What tastes better than freshly squeezed orange juice? Not much, that's for sure! But Little Miss Sunshine is on the list!
We've been on a fresh orange juice kick lately*, which has inspired some delightful new cocktails. The first of which is this bright little lady, Little Miss Sunshine. Freshly squeezed Cara Cara orange juice is luscious in flavor and color and is perfect here with our NewMexcal Smoky Joven Agave Spirit**, Green Sauce green chile liqueur and Purple People Eater prickly pear liqueur.
This is tangy, smoky, spicy and orange-y sweet!
Don’t worry, though, if you don’t have Cara Cara oranges (usually available in the US in stores from October until early May). This will be delicious with any freshly squeezed OJ!
We like this over ice in a highball glass. Mmmm.... so refreshing!
*We use fresh orange peels to make our orange liqueur, and end up with lots of yummy oranges to juice!
**We are very excited to introduce our new 505 Spirits NEWMEXCAL Smoky Joven Agave Spirit in this delicious cocktail! We are importing this from Mexico, and it is a true mezcal.
See recipe below.

LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE RECIPE
1 oz NewMexcal Smoky Joven Agave Spirit
1.5 oz Green Sauce green chile liqueur
1.5 oz Purple People Eater prickly pear liqueur
2 oz freshly squeezed orange juice
Fill a highball glass with ice. Add ingredients and stir. This cocktail needs no garnish to shine, but if you have fresh oranges and are so inclined, add a slice to the edge of your glass.
CHEERS TO SUNNY DAYS!
