It gives me much joy to share my favorite Filipino citrus flavor — the calamansi in this delightful cocktail — a Calamansi Frozen Margarita. The calamansi has a piercing, powerful yet pleasant lime-like flavor and aroma. Calamansi are known as the Filipino lime. In the USA, they grow and thrive in warm climates like California, Florida, Arizona. In the Philippines, the trees grow in backyards and can be found abundant in markets.
This cocktail drink pairs well with Filipino food, Asian cuisine or most mainstream dishes. The sweet, refreshing beverage is made from the mildly-tart citrus calamansi, the Filipino lime. This light, frizzy and sparkling iced beverage is sure to be a hit when you entertain. The complete recipe was featured by The Happy Home Cook on Positively Filipino, the premiere online magazine.

If calamansi, whether fresh or frozen concentrate are not available, use fresh lemons instead and the results are just as wonderful.
