This probably comes as no surprise…

But I just can’t help myself.

And you shouldn’t be able to either.

Blood Orange Margaritas


makes a single serving

1 1/2 ounces tequila (silver or gold, based on your preference)

1 ounce grand mariner

1 1/2 ounces simple syrup

1 ounce fresh lime juice

1 1/2 ounces blood orange juice (about 1-2 oranges)

salt for the rim, lime/orange wedges for garnish

Rim the ridge of your glass with a lime wedge and dip in margarita salt. I actually combined the salt with some blood orange sugar, but that’s up to you. Fill the glass with ice. In a cocktail shaker, combine tequila, grand marnier, simple syrup, blood orange and lime juice with ice, and shake for about 30 seconds. Pour over ice and squeeze in lemon and orange slices.
