This time of year is great if you love margaritas because oranges and limes are every where and they are cheap. Blood oranges are a bit sweeter and add a wonderful color to the drink. I already add fresh orange juice to every margarita because it adds the perfect amount of sweetness without making it too sweet.
If you are out shopping get a few blood oranges and try this lovely drink. You could also add it to a lemon drop or mojito. They aren't around for long so this is the time to give it a try.
3 ounces Tequila
Juice of 1 lime
1 ounce triple sec
Juice of one blood orange
salt for rim (optional)
fill shaker half way with ice. Add all 4 ingredients. Rim glass with salt fill half way with ice. Shake drink and pour in glass. Enjoy
