The Lemon Orchard honors the herbal freshness of cilantro and the sweet citrus notes of a lemon. Combining these ingredients with tequila proves a milder version of Amor y Fuego, and also supplies your  guests with a refreshing take on a tequila shot. It’s smooth and easy, a great refresher between sets on the dance floor. Try this drink or one of our other suggestions as your signature wedding cocktail.
