foodie friday: blood orange margaritas

IMG_0204

I love “punch,” many know this. Now is the time to really admit that I love mixed drinks and somehow putting it in a punch bowl makes it less troubling in my mind. Please, I’ve said it before and I will say it forever, a signature drink at a party is essential.

So when I saw this recipe on White On Rice Couple, I knew I needed to make it. And almost two years later, it’s finally happened and oh heavens, if it wouldn’t be a problem to make them daily I would.

Lightly Sweet, tart, citrus, and tequila. How could it be bad.

Blood Orange Margarita Recipe
adapted from White on Rice Couple

3 oz fresh Blood Orange Juice
1.5 oz Tequila (I used the Herradura Reposado)
1 oz Triple Sec (From the liquor store guy: use Patron Orange, a touch classier)
splash of agave nectar syrup

1. Rub the rim of an old fashioned glass (or whatever similar vessel you prefer) with an edge of a blood orange slice. Swirl the rim through a small pile of kosher or sea salt to salt the rim.
2. Combine all ingredients into a cocktail shaker, add ice and shake for 15 seconds.
3. Put a few cubes of ice in your glass. Strain the cocktail into the glass and enjoy.
