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.


Frozen Blood Orange Margarita
From Ina Garten

1/2 cup fresh blood orange juice
2 tbsp lemon juice
3 cups ice
1 cup Triple Sec
1 cup white tequila
4 frozen margarita glasses

    Combine the blood orange juice, lemon juice, Triple Sec, and ice in a blender and puree until completely blended. Add the tequila and puree for 2 seconds more.

  1. Alternatively, combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker, shake hard to form ice crystals.
  2. Pour or strain into a prepared frozen margarita glasses or glasses filled with ice and serve.

Makes 4 drinks.
