Florida Cane Vodka Orlando Orange Margarita

When I first tasted Florida Cane Vodka Orlando Orange last year at the Florida Cane Vodka tasting room, I thoroughly enjoyed the velvety smoothness and ever so light sweetness of the vodka. As the case with most of the Florida Cane Vodka artisan flavors, this premium vodka is the type you can pour over ice and enjoy straight up. Although due to the craftsmanship spent into developing these gorgeous spirits, all the varieties of the Florida Cane Vodka also make some truly exceptional cocktails.

On a whim, Iron Chef Allan and I omitted the usual Petron Citron from our homemade margarita mix and replaced with a bit of Florida Cane Vodka Orlando Orange. The results produced a lighter, crisper margarita rather than an overly sweet margarita.

      That’s the beauty of making a homemade cocktail mix. You control the sweetness. I find the mixes you buy in the store are overly sweet because of all the HFCS.
