Keyword Blood Orange Margarita, cocktail, margarita recipe


  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice about 2 limes
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed blood orange juice about 1 blood orange
  • 1/2 oz. simple syrup more or less, to taste
  • 1/2 oz. triple sec
  • 1 1/4 oz. silver tequila any kind works – I just prefer the clear
  • salt for rim


  1. In a cocktail shaker filled 1/2 way with ice, add in the juices, simple syrup, triple sec, and tequila. Shake for 20-30 seconds until good and cold.
  2. Using one of the limes (there’s usually enough left), go around the rim of the glass then dip into the salt.
  3. Put a few cubes into the glass, then pour the strained margarita into the glass.
  4. Garnish with a slice of blood orange and enjoy!
