I love the blood orange. Blood orange has this deep wine color to it, plus the citrus has this wine like taste to it. Blood oranges are simply beautiful!

What type of blood orange drink should I make? I really wanted to make a blood orange drink, mostly because of the pretty wine color. That wine color is perfect for a winter cocktail!

Cocktail With Blood Orange

I saw a segment years ago on a cooking show where they were making a cocktail with blood orange. 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.

Citrus Margarita

Wait! 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 Recipe

This blood orange margarita will be my second blood orange recipe to feature blood oranges. The first blood orange recipe was the Orange Snowball Cookies.  Bolthouse Farms now has a blood orange juice, which inspired me to create a blood orange margarita.

I quickly thought that a blood orange drink from Bolthouse Farms would be amazing for a Blood Orange Margarita. I was right, that blood orange juice just really makes this Blood Orange Margarita explode with flavor. Plus it the perfect balance to make an amazing margarita recipe.

Decent margarita spec! I'd cut back a little on the blood oj and triple sec to 2oz and 0.75oz respectively, up the lime juice to 0.75oz and add a little 1:1 agave syrup (about 0.5oz) and it's golden.
