Wedding Weekend Cocktails

We had some tequila (Patron) leftover from the Cinco de Mayo party and I thought that the wedding weekend was a perfect excuse to use it up. Here are two recipes (compliments of my friend from NYC) that we'll be trying out this weekend. Yee Haw:

Roxie’s Heavenly Heart

2 cups tequila, good stuff
2 cups chilled blood-orange juice (or OJ)
1 cup orange flavored liqueur (Grand Marnier, Cointreau or Triple Sec)
1 bottle chilled Champagne or sparkling wine

Combine tequila, juice and liqueur in ice-filled shaker. Strain into chilled flutes: top with campagne. Garnish with orange peels. Makes 8.

All That Jazz

2 cups tequila, good stuff
2 cups chilled orange juice
½ cup fresh lime juice
1 cup orange flavored liqueur (Grand Marnier, Cointreau or Triple Sec)

Combine tequila, juices and liqueur in ice filled shaker. Strain into salt rimmed cocktail glasses. Garnish with lime wheels. Makes 8.

What is NOT a good excuse to use up tequila?
