Blood Orange Margaritas? Hell Yeah


My friend from Rarita Vanesita the Obnoxious Wall Flower brought me this tasty cocktail recipe, for a blood orange margarita. 

Blood Orange Margarita
1 1/2 measure Tequila reposada 
3/4 measure Cointreau 
1 measure blood orange juice
1/2 measure sour mix
1 orange twist
(optional)

Pour liquor into shaker, fill with ice, shake. Pour into a (salt or sugar rimmed) cocktail glass half filled with ice and add orange twist for garnish. Enjoy!

Because I am Mexican and eat delicious Mexican food often, I like to reserve Cinco De Mayo for nachos and margaritas. Preferably at home with friends and family. You all know I'm kind of a lush so friends and family are optional too.

This drink is ridiculously good. I mean ridiculously good. I was very sad not to have a new bottle of tequila handy and that I couldn't spend the day drinking my day away (I do still have to be a responsible mommy). I HIGHLY recommend this beverage for your next girls night, Mexican themed dinner party or afternoon spent by the pool.

  1. I've had San Pellegrino Blood Orange soda, which is super sweet. But I'm guessing the tequila and sour mix cut out most of the sweetness? This sounds good.
