Yes, this is a margarita. And yes, St. Patrick’s Day is supposed to celebrate Irish, not Spanish, culture, but we did say “nontraditional.”

1/2 ounce triple sec
A splash of orange curaà§ao
Juice of 2 limes

Directions:

Pour the ingredients into a shaker with ice cubes. Shake until frothy. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. You can also blend this cocktail with 3/4 cup ice in a blender and serve and/or rim the glass with salt.
