Blood Orange Margarita

December 13, 2022

The beautiful, yet simple margarita is made with fresh blood oranges, limes, agave nectar and tequila.  Blood oranges have a stronger flavor than traditional oranges, the aroma is more intense and has a hint of raspberry.


  • 2 ounces silver tequila
  • 2 ounces fresh blood orange juice (typically 1 large blood orange)
  • 1-ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar
  • Glass preparation
  • Sea salt to rim glass
  • ice
  • Lime wedges or blood orange wedges to garnish


  1. Run a wedge of lime around the top of your glass and dip into salt, then add ice to glass.
  2. Mix tequila, freshly squeezed blood orange and lime juice and agave nectar in a cocktail shaker with ice.  Shake until frothy.
  3. Strain the mixture into your prepared glass
  4. Enjoy!
