Margarita, margarita, MAR-GA-RITA! It’s February 22 and for National Margarita Day of course, I wanted to share our latest margarita recipe – Blood Orange Margarita. A few weeks back, I started seeing blood oranges at the grocery store. I always like to have them for drink recipes or even charcuterie boards because they are so pretty. Once, we made Blood Orange Moscow Mules and I was hooked on them ever since. We aren’t strangers to margarita recipes either.
Blood oranges are mild in taste and visually beautiful. I love that deep red pop of color when you slice a blood orange open. Ah! I get so excited when that happens. There was no doubt we needed to try a new cocktail recipe with them. My husband is great at making cocktails. I always call him in for reinforcement. My favorite part of cocktails is the styling and garnish. What glass will we use, what garnish do we have, can we use salt or sugar on the rim? And of course, I like to taste test.
