The acidity of fresh blood orange juice in this margarita is outstanding. The bright, tart flavors of blood orange makes a brilliantly colored cocktail and not to mention very refreshing too.We also have a newer version which incorporates bitters into the margarita for an additional layer of flavor. Find that recipe here: Blood Orange Margarita w Bitters.
3ounces(90ml) fresh Blood Orange Juice
3/4ounce(20ml) fresh Lime Juice
1ounce(30ml) Simple Syrup or Agave Nectar
Rub the rim of an old fashioned glass (or whatever similar vessel you prefer to drink out of) with an edge of a blood orange slice. Swirl the rim through a small pile of kosher or sea salt to salt the rim.
Combine all ingredients into an ice filled cocktail shaker and shake for 15 seconds.
Put a few cubes of ice in the salted glass. Strain the cocktail into the glass and enjoy.
Note 1: A basic simple syrup is a 1:1 ratio of sugar dissolved in water. example- One cup sugar dissolved in one cup of water. We usually make larger batches and keep on hand in the refrigerator.
