These are wonderful! I have never made fresh fruit margaritas, but now I may not be able to stop!! The margaritas were so fresh and light, and not to mention strong! The blood orange was not too sweet or sour and the lemon balanced out the flavor really well. Blood oranges were an excellent addition to the new foods list! These are a bit of work, I'm not going to lie, my arm was a little sore the next day from juicing all the fruit. I would definitely recommend an electric citrus juicer of some kind. The blood orange margaritas were an excellent addition to our Super Bowl Party! Sorry for the lack of photos, once I started drinking, photos became unimportant...
Blood Orange Margaritas
Inspired by How Sweet it is
Recipe from Food & Wine
- 4 cups blood orange juice
- 1 1/2 cups lime juice
- 1 1/2 cups triple sec
- 3 1/2 cups silver tequila
- 1 orange + 1 lime in slices for garnish
- Ice for serving
Juice the oranges and limes and pour into a pitcher, it gets a little messy.
Add in the the triple sec and and tequila, stir, cover the pitcher with plastic, and refrigerate until chilled.
Pour into glasses with ice, garnish with fruit slices. If you like salt on the rim, do that, I don't like the saltiness.
