Ingredients

Rim

Cocktail

  • 2 ounces tequila
  • ounces orange liqueur
  • 1 ounce blood orange juice fresh-squeezed
  • ½ ounce lime juice fresh-squeezed

Instructions

  • Dip the rim of the glass in blood orange juice followed by sugar. Set aside until ready to use.
  • Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add the tequila, orange liqueur, blood orange juice, and lime juice. Shake well -- about 30 seconds.
  • Strain into rimmed glass and enjoy. Garnish with a slice of blood orange or lime.

Notes

  • I recommend using freshly squeezed juice in this recipe -- it really makes a huge difference in the flavor!
  • I used Grand Marnier, but you could also use Cointreau or triple sec.
  • You can substitute the Citrus Liqueur and Lime juice for 2 ounces of pre-made margarita mix if you have some on hand.
  • For a bubbly margarita, add a splash of club soda or blood orange-flavored sparkling water or seltzer.
  • Nutritional information does not include the sugar rim. A salt rim may also be used.
