I made these for the first time last March and was SO disappointed that I missed the blood orange wagon time frame! But not this year!! 🙂 I’ve been sipping a few of these here and there but quite honestly, it does NOT need to be peak blood orange season to enjoy them!
There are tons of recipes out there for Blood Orange Margaritas and they are pretty much the same, EXCEPT they only make TWO drinks (WTF?) and they use TABLESPOONS for measuring. Umm … if I have to make 2 to 3 batches, you really think I’m using a tablespoon accurately? Ummm, no. It’s bad enough without alcohol … so just imagine when you add a 1/4 cup or 3/4 cup of Tequila!!
The first time I made this, blood oranges were out of season. Go figure, right? 3 stores later and finally the Whole Foods dude tells me that. The other 2 stores had no clue. The wonderful produce dude did, however, point me over to the fresh juice section …
100% blood orange juice. Nothing more, nothing less. $6.99 for 32 ounces. Crap. That’s expensive. But I was on a mission by this time. So I sucked it up and forked over the cash. And I did it again several times, only now, because they are IN season, it was $5.99 for the bottle. Whatever.
Here’s what you need … they are pretty lip smackin worthy 🙂 (and this makes about 4 to 5 drinks)
1 cup blood orange juice
1/4 cup of fresh lime juice (about 3 limes)
1/3 cup Cointreau’s
3/4 cup silver tequila
Shake all in shaker and pour in glass over ice.
Sip, smack lips, debate if next should have salt and say, nah, who needs that sodium!
I was aiming to make these over the summer, but got sucked in to the Mango Margaritas (which WERE in season) and then the yummy Peach Vodka with Ruby Red Grapefruit and Cranberry Juice … but this was really really tasty and would be great poolside! I am thinking maybe I should stockpile the juice and freeze in ice cube trays to use for the summertime … what do you think?
