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 1/2 ounces (3 tablespoons) tequila blanco or reposado*
  • 2 ounces (1/4 cup) blood orange juice
  • 3/4 ounce (1 1/2 tablespoons) Cointreau
  • 3/4 ounce (1 1/2 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 1/2 cups tequila, 2 cups blood orange juice, 3/4 cup Cointreau, and 3/4 cup lime juice. Add three handfuls of ice and stir until cold. Pour into individual glasses.
