Blood Orange Margarita
Blood Orange Margaritas are made with freshly squeezed blood orange and lime juices mixed with tequila and orange liqueur to create a flavorful drink that can be served on the rocks or frozen
Servings: 1 drink
- 2 ounces tequila
- 1½ ounces orange liqueur
- 1 ounce blood orange juice fresh-squeezed
- ½ ounce lime juice fresh-squeezed
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.
- 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.
