Clementine Margartia Mix

1 1/4 cup lime juice (17-25 limes, depending on the type and size of lime)

1 1/4 cup clementine juice (15-20 clementines, or mandarin oranges)

2 1/4 cups water

1 1/4 cup sugar

1/4 - 1/2 tsp salt, to taste

2 cups tequila

3/4 cup triple sec

Combine water, sugar, and salt in a saucepan. Stir and heat for several minutes, until sugar and salt dissolve. Turn off heat and allow the mixture to cool. Meanwhile, juice the limes and mandarin oranges with a citrus juicer. Pour through a strainer to remove the pulp and any stray seeds. Pour the sugar water, juice, tequila, and triple sec into a container and mix it all together.

Chill and stir or shake before serving. Best served with ice and a salted rim.

Makes about 1/2 gallon.
