Sour oranges, naranja agria, have a floral orange flavor with the tartness of lime. As such, they make a wonderful base for a variation on the margarita. The oranges are bumpy with a greenish tinge and are available in Hispanic markets and grocery stores. Be sure to strain the seeds as they have more than other oranges.
