Happy Hour: Blood Orange Margarita

I love a good margarita. I inherited this love from my mother who inhales tequila quicker than a vacuum cleaner as long as it's in the form of a good margarita. Occasionally we have been known to do a Patron shot or two together but usually we just stick to margaritas. Blended or on the rocks, depending on our mood. I plan on making her this recipe when I see her over the holidays. Don't wait to make this recipe because blood oranges are in season right now.
