BLOOD ORANGE MARGARITA RECIPE
If you haven't tried making a margarita with fresh blood oranges, you are missing out on quite a treat. Enjoy!

For the few weeks a year when blood oranges are in season, these tart and tangy blood orange margaritas are the perfect celebration of this beautiful and unique fruit. Cheers!

INGREDIENTS:

3 ounces tequila

2 ounces orange liqueur

3 ounces simple syrup

2 ounces fresh lime juice (about 1 - 2 limes)

3 ounces blood orange juice (about 2 - 3 oranges)

METHOD:

Fill your rocks glasses or tumblers with ice.

In a cocktail shaker, combine all ingredients with ice and shake for 20 - 30 seconds.

Pour liquid into the glasses and enjoy.

CHEF'S NOTES:

To make your own simple syrup, combine equal parts sugar and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Let the sugar dissolve, then turn off the heat and cool completely. Simple syrup can be kept in the refrigerator for at least a week in a tightly sealed bottle.
