Two guest-star ingredients turn a typical happy-hour margarita into a sunny brunch beverage: Orange marmalade adds a bittersweet tang, and El Guitarron agave wine ($15, cordelwine.com) comes from the same plant as tequila but has about half the alcohol, so you can toast over French toast without needing a siesta.

- 1 ounce fresh lime juice, plus lime wedges for rim and garnish
- Kosher salt
- 2 ounces El Guitarron agave wine
- 1/2 ounce Cointreau
- 2 teaspoons orange marmalade
- 1 teaspoon superfine sugar
- Orange wedges, for garnish
Moisten the edge of a glass with lime wedge, then dip it in salt. Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Add agave wine, Cointreau, lime juice, marmalade, and sugar; shake 30 seconds. Fill glass with ice, strain drink over top, and garnish with orange and lime wedges.
For a sweeter taste, switch in apricot preserves for the marmalade.
