Ingredients and Substitutions to Make Rosé Margaritas
- Orange Liqueur – Grand Marnier is a cognac based orange liqueur. You can use that one or whatever type of orange liqueur you can find.
- Lime Juice – Fresh squeezed lime juice is always best! There’s just something better about the vibrant flavor. However, you can use store bought lime juice in a pinch- I’ll never tell!
- Tequila – Any type of blanco tequila works beautifully here… you can learn more in my Tequila Guide.
- Wine – We used a pink rosé wine in this recipe for the pretty color! Choose your favorite white wine or rosé for this recipe.
- Replace the lime juice with fresh squeezed orange juice or lemon juice.
- Try with your favorite type of wine or make a Champagne Margarita with some bubbles!
- Replace the lime juice with fresh squeezed grapefruit juice and the orange liqueur with grapefruit soda for wine Paloma!
- Serve over ice.
- Serve blended – just toss ingredients with a cup of ice into your blender!

- Fresh Juice – Of course you can buy premade lime juice in the produce section. But you’ll be so glad you went to the extra step of squeezing the limes, and it’s easy to make the juice ahead for Margarita Mix and store it before a party!
- Quality Tequila – This really does make a world of difference. Don’t skip my complete Tequila Guide for all the best options!
