Blood Orange Margarita Recipe

Happy Hour: Blood Orange Margarita

When I think of the Super Bowl, only one cocktail comes to mind: the margarita. While I've never met a margarita I didn't like, from beer to blackberry to jalapeño, my current obsession is with blood orange margaritas. Blood oranges are in season, and they give the drink a beautiful vibrant color and lovely tart flavor. I prefer my margaritas straight up or on the rocks, but if you enjoy them blended, feel free to toss the ingredients into a blender with ice. Pair with a plate of spicy chorizo nachos and let the weekend begin! Here's the recipe.
