This weekend is all about the margarita.
This time of year in California is filled with delicious citrus. I was recently at my grandparent’s house and they have a lemon and blood orange tree that just keeps on giving. I swear the trees were picked for hours last weekend and we still didn’t totally get them all. With that said we have been putting lemons and oranges in pretty much everything, so why not up the ante with a mouthwatering blood orange margarita?
BLOOD ORANGE MARGARITA
What you need:
1 blood orange
1 lime plus two wedges
2 oz. good blanco tequila
1 oz. orange liqueur (I recommend Citronge)
Mix it up:
Place some flake salt on a plate. Rim a glass using one of the lime wedges and then push the rim of the glass into the rock salt until you see the salt sticking to the edge of the glass. Fill glass with ice and set aside.
Put a few cubes of ice into a martini shaker and add the juice of one blood orange and one lime, tequila, orange liquor and agave nectar to taste (about 1 tsp.). Shake thoroughly and pour into glass. Garnish with lime wedge.
