A blood orange margarita

This Margarita Proves The Cocktail Isn’t Just A Fair-Weather Drink

I love a good blood orange. They arrive in winter months just in time for the holidays. They are so delicious and a bright light in the dark cold months. I use them as much as I can in cocktails because you never know when they will disappear.

One of my favorite cocktails to make with blood oranges are margaritas because they go really well with the earthy notes of the tequila.

For this margarita, I decided to switch it up with mezcal. The smoky notes from the mezcal really balance out with the citrus from the blood orange and lime. Make sure to buy a lot of blood oranges if you can because you will want more than one of these gorgeous margaritas.
