Blood Orange & Lemongrass Coronarita

  • 2 oz Lemongrass Simple Syrup (See recipe below)
  • 4 oz Blood Orange Juice
  • 4 oz Lime Juice
  • 6 oz Tequila
  • 1 oz Grand Marnier
  • 4 Coronitas

Lemongrass Simple Syrup

  • 2 Cups Water
  • 2 Cups Sugar
  • 4 Stalks Lemongrass


Blood Orange & Lemongrass CoronaRita

  1. Start by making the Lemongrass Simple Syrup. (See instructions below) Let it cool before you make the CoronaRitas.
  2. Place all ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Shake until thoroughly combined.
  3. Pour over ice. Add Coronita. (The trick here is to flip it over and shove it into the drink as fast as possible. Be quick!)
  4. Serve immediately.

Lemongrass Simple Syrup

  1. Chop each piece of Lemongrass into several chunks. Roll them with your knife while applying a little pressure to break them. This helps release their oils/flavor.
  2. Put all ingredient into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and cool. Store in an airtight jar or bottle.
