Cheers to the weekend!!! ?? Fresh blood orange juice, limes, tequila, orange liquor, and ice make for a strong — but very refreshing — drink. PSA: blood ?s have a slightly different taste than regular oranges and a dramatically different look! They make for quite a knockout of a drink ? Here, I used pink Himalayan salt for the rim because the colors gotta match! ? 21+
Blood Orange Margarita
Up or on the rocks this drink is refreshing and all natural.
- 2 oz blood orange juice fresh
- 3/4 oz lime juice fresh
- 1 1/2 oz silver tequila
- 1 oz orange liquor
- 1 tbsp salt
Add ingredients to a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
Shake and strain into a glass. Salt rim optional!
Drink can be served on the rocks or up.
Fresh limes are a must, don’t even think of using the bottled kind.
I used pink Himalayan salt for the rim, goes with the “color story”
You can add a dash or so of simple syrup if you like your drinks sweeter, I like a strong tart drink every once in a while.
