Bloody Halloween Margarita Recipe

The Only Thing Missing From Your Horror Movie Marathons? This Bloody Margarita Recipe


Let's bring one of our favorite summer drinks into the spooky season, shall we? Yep, I'm talking about the good ol' margarita. I wanted a fun frozen margarita that could read as more of a Halloween cocktail than just a standard frozen drink, so I decided to get a little creative (and devilish) when creating this Bloody Halloween Margarita recipe. Rather than going with the expected strawberry option, I went with Tazo's Berry Hibiscus Margarita mix for color and flavor. It makes your margarita recipe incredibly simple, because it already has a combination of flavors, including lime juice and sweetener. For me, though, I like a lot of those flavors, so I added extra, but that's totally up to you.


To make this marg truly scary, I added a dripping blood rim to the glass, which you can do a number of ways. I combined some powdered sugar with cherry juice to get a red drizzle and then coated that in red sugar. You could also try something like honey tinted red or just use lime juice with red sugar. Feel free to play around with ingredients and flavors! I added some red food color to the margarita itself too to make it a more intense color, but you can always leave that out if you don't want the additive. Either way, the Tazo margarita mix will give you a red drink perfect for serving on Halloween.

Bloody Halloween Margarita Recipe


  1. 1 ounce tequila
    1 ounce triple sec
    Splash lime juice
    1/2 ounce simple syrup
    1/2 cup Tazo Berry Hibiscus Margarita Mix
    1 1/2 cups ice
    Red food coloring
  1. Optional:
    Red sanding sugar
    Powdered sugar
    Any red fruit juice


  1. If you want to rim your glass, start by mixing powdered sugar and a red fruit juice together to drizzle on the rim so it slightly resembles blood dripping. Dip that in the red sanding sugar and put in the freezer while you make the margarita.
  2. Place all remaining ingredients in a blender and blend. Adjust red food coloring to your liking.
  3. Pour into glass and enjoy immediately.
