  • 1 14 ounces amaretto liqueur
  • Garnish

  1. Moisten the rim of a margarita glass and dip it in green sugar crystals. Or skip this step if you prefer.

  3. Serve with a shot of amaretto on the side, and garnish with a lime wedge and orange wedge on the rim.
  4. ( I don't know if you are supposed to add the amaretto to the drink once it is served, but whenever I go to Olive Garden I mix the shot of amaretto with the margarita and I think it tastes great).
