Posted by: Ari Laing

This Blood Orange Margarita recipe is a slight variation on a classic margarita with the addition of fresh blood orange juice. It's tangy and not overly sweet, and very easy to drink. You'll love the pop of color! A great cocktail for Cinco de Mayo or any night of the week!

Equipment

  • Cocktail shaker with strainer
  • Small bowl for Kosher salt

Ingredients

  • 4 oz tequila blanco we recommend Casamigos
  • 2 oz fresh blood orange juice
  • 2 oz fresh lime juice
  • 1 oz Cointreau
  • ¾ oz agave nectar
  • Kosher salt for the rim of the glass
  • Blood orange and limes for garnish, either wheels or wedges

Instructions

  • Make the blood orange marg. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, then add 4 oz tequila, 2 oz blood orange juice, 2 oz lime juice, 1 oz Cointreau, and ¾ oz  agave. Secure lid, then shake for 10-12 seconds to aerate the drink.
  • Prepare the glass, then serve. Run a lime wedge along the rim of a glass, then dip upside down into a shallow bowl of Kosher salt. Place ice in glass (optional). Strain into glasses and serve with blood orange wedges or wheels.

Notes

  • Don't have agave nectar? You can use simple syrup instead! To make simple syrup, combine equal parts water and sugar in a small saucepan, then heat without bringing to a boil until the sugar has melted. We recommend using 1 cup of each, then storing leftover simple syrup in a squeeze bottle or airtight container. When sealed and stored in a refrigerator, simple syrup will keep for weeks.
