Besides experimenting with paint colors lately, I’ve also been pinning cocktails that look interesting. So, in the spirit of investigative blogging, I picked up some blood oranges last week and made
Blood Orange Margaritas!
They are very good, I highly recommend trying them while the blood oranges are available.
Here’s the recipe
Makes: 2 servings
2 limes, zest and juiced
1 tablespoon flaky sea salt (for the rim)
1 cup ice
1 to 2 tablespoons agave nectar (depending on the sweetness from your oranges and your preference)
3/4 cup freshly squeezed blood orange juice
4 ounces tequila
In a shallow plate, gently toss the sea salt and zests from the limes together.
Rub the rims of your glasses with a lime wedge and dip the rims in the lime zest and salt mixture. In a cocktail shaker, combine ice, agave, lime juice, blood orange juice and tequila, and shake for about 30 seconds.
Evenly divide the cocktail into the prepared glasses. Garnish with a wedge of lime and a slice of blood orange. Add a couple pieces of ice if desired. Enjoy.
