Who can say no to margaritas? This cocktail recipe takes it up another notch by including four different citrusy fruit juices — lemon, lime, grapefruit and orange  — to mix with tequila and Campari. Drink this cocktail while you stuff your face with tacos or quesadillas.

Notes

For this cocktail recipe, chill for several hours.

You can serve these margaritas straight up if desired: Pour 3/4 cup of the mix into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Strain into prepared glass.
