Blood orange margarita
This is the best margarita recipe using blood oranges – and the easiest.
I picked up some bold-colored blood oranges while shopping, knowing I would try to find the best recipe I could to utilize their intense color and gentle citrusy flavor.
The best margarita recipe I could find was a super easy one, perfect for this not-too-frequent mixologist! When it was time to garnish, that’s when I really had fun – and so will you.
