On the most recent episode of “The Chew,” Clinton Kelly shared his cherry margarita recipe, one he claims that both margarita lovers and those who don’t usually like margaritas will enjoy.

He acknowledged that while tequila can get a party started, it can also end it really quickly. In fact, he shared that he and his partner have a rule of thumb when it comes to tequila that every couple should follow: “Only one of us is allowed to drink tequila at a time.”

  • 2.5 oz. Tequila
  • 1.5 oz. orange liqueur
