{sunset Obamaritas}
The classic margarita is hard to beat, but the Obamarita is a refreshing, bright, spicy new twist on the traditional -- just like our President. We mixed some up this weekend and toasted in celebration of Obama, President's Day, and the gorgeous summery weather.

Survey says: Tart and spicy with potential to be my signature springtime cocktail.

I stole the recipe and the clever name from
here; but my version is a little different:

1 part Tequila
1 part Grand Marnier (Grand Marnier is the secret to an amazing marg)
1 part pineapple juice
1 part freshly squeezed lime juice
Tajin to rim the glasses
Splash of Trader Joe's orange-flavored sparking water
Pineapple and twist of lime for garnish

Combine all ingredients (except sparkling water) in a cocktail shaker with crushed ice. Shake until shaker shows condensation. Pour into glass rimmed with Tajin. Top with sparkling water and garnish with pineapple and lime.
