Description

This blood orange margarita is the perfect way to use this vibrant fruit! Add tequila and lime for a stunning citrus cocktail.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 ½ ounces (3 tablespoons) tequila blanco or reposado*
  • 2 ounces (¼ cup) blood orange juice
  • ¾ ounce (1 ½ tablespoons) Cointreau
  • ¾ ounce (1 ½ tablespoons) fresh lime juice
  • Kosher salt, flaky sea salt, or Himalayan pink sea salt, for the rim (optional)
  • Ice, for serving (try clear ice)

Instructions

  1. Cut a notch in a lime wedge, then run the lime around the rim of a glass. Dip the edge of the rim into a plate of salt (or for a festive look, use Margarita Salt).
  2. Place all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and fill it with ice. Shake until cold. Strain the margarita into the glass with the salted rim. Fill the glass with ice, garnish with a blood orange slice, if desired.

Notes

*To make a pitcher of 8 servings, mix together in a pitcher: 1 ½ cups tequila, 2 cups blood orange juice, ¾ cup Cointreau, and ¾ cup lime juice. Add three handfuls of ice and stir until cold. Pour into individual glasses.
