Blood Orange Margarita

by Danica Waters

Browsing through one of my all-time favorite blogs, (Ree Drummond’s The Pioneer Woman) I ran across this fantastic photo of Blood Orange Margaritas.  Made my mouth water, and I thought I’d share.  The recipe actually comes from a great food blog called White On Rice Couple.  I am in LOVE!  Beautiful food, beautiful photographs…  check them out!

“Blood Orange Margarita Recipe
The acidity of  fresh blood orange juice in this margarita is outstanding. The bright, tart flavors of blood orange makes a brilliantly colored cocktail and not to mention very refreshing too.

3 oz fresh Blood Orange Juice
2 oz Tequila (for recommendations see comments on Meyer Lemon Margarita post)
1 oz  Triple Sec
splash of agave nectar (syrup) (optional yet fantastic suggestion from Brooke-who is a kick ass bartender)

1. Rub the rim of an old fashioned glass (or whatever similar vessel you prefer) with an edge of a blood orange slice.  Swirl the rim through a small pile of kosher or sea salt to salt the rim.

2. Combine all ingredients into a cocktail shaker, add ice and shake for 15 seconds.

3. Put a few cubes of ice in your glass.  Strain the cocktail into the glass and enjoy.”
