Orange Margarita

I love margaritas. I love all flavors of that margarita cocktail. I decided I wanted to create an orange margarita.


An orange margarita sounds nice but blood orange cocktail sounds better. Blood Oranges have this pretty wine color to them and they make the best orange margarita.

Citrus Margarita

Wait! doesn’t isn’t margaritas already a¬†citrus margarita? Yes but an orange margarita recipe is more orange than lemon. When you want to make a¬†citrus margarita, depending on what flavor you want to bring out, you use more of that citrus.

Blood Orange Cocktail

I saw a segment years ago on a cooking show where they were using a blood orange in a blood orange cocktail. I thought the wine color of the blood orange was just beautiful. That image of the blood orange cocktail ended up being stuck in the back of my head after that.
