This little bunny has another cocktail for you this week. Why? Well, why not! It’s brunch season, and we are here for it especially with Easter just in a couple of days. Earlier this week was a spring and sweet mimosa made up of oranges, pineapple, and pears. Today, it’s a cara cara orange paloma to put a big smile on those tequila lovers’ faces. Cheers to a happy Friday, and have a wonderful Easter weekend!

In a pitcher, juice the orange and lemon or lime juice. Fresh juice is the best! Then let’s mix in the agave and tequila. Set aside.
Take the sliced/cut lime or lemon wedge and moisten the rim. This step is optional. I skipped it this time around. Then dip each glass in the coarse salt (if desired). I like to add a pinch of salt to the drink instead of rimming the glass.
Next, pour the tequila and juice mix evenly into the two glasses. Top each glass with 5-7 ounces of sparkling flavored water. Garnish by slicing oranges and putting them against the sides of the glasses. Top with edible flowers!
