If you have a Z Tejas restaurant anywhere near where you live and you like cocktails, chances are you have had a Chambord margarita.
This is not the exact recipe, but it comes scary close to a copycat.
If you haven't had a margarita like this, the Chambord almost completely mellows the tequila and the citrus, making a sweet and refreshing cocktail. Blended velvety smooth, this packs a seriously unexpected boozy punch.
1 c frozen lemon sorbet
1 c premium gold tequila, or to taste
1 c orange juice
2 c ice cubes
Chambord (for serving, to taste)
Blend all ingredients (except Chambord) in a blender until velvety and smooth. If too stiff, add additional orange juice or tequila, if too watery, add more ice or sorbet or both. To serve, pour a small amount of Chambord into a glass, then pour margarita mixture over top. Pour additional Chambord over the top. Serve immediately.
