Blood Orange Margarita Recipe

Yield: 1 Cocktail
Total Time:
10 mins
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.


  • 3 ounces (90ml) fresh Blood Orange Juice
  • 3/4 ounce (20ml) fresh Lime Juice
  • 2 ounces (60ml) Tequila 
  • 1 ounce (30ml) Simple Syrup or Agave Nectar


  1. 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.
  2. Combine all ingredients into an ice filled cocktail shaker and shake for 15 seconds.
  3. Put a few cubes of ice in the salted glass.  Strain the cocktail into the glass and enjoy.

Recipe Notes

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.
