Description

If you know anything about me, you will know that I love a good drink. And nothing satisfies me more than a sour and salty margarita. No pre-made mixes for me. I like freshly squeezed lime juice.

Every winter Blood Oranges come into season in California. And I look so forward to buying them and letting them kick my margarita into overdrive. The oranges add a tart acidity and the red color of the juice makes a gorgeous cocktail that blows my mind.

If you can’t find blood oranges, you can make this recipe with regular oranges and add a little red food coloring to the cocktail shaker.

I am not a fan of sweet cocktails so I don’t like to add any simple syrup, but if you prefer you drinks a little sweeter you can add the agave or honey I have left in the recipe as optional.

This should serve 2, but I prefer to look at it as one BIG drink for me.

Salute. I toast your health…
xxxx Chef MM
