Cocktail of the Month :: Blood Orange Margaritas

This time of year, there are still a lot of blood oranges at my local market. I love blood oranges; I use them in just about all my cocktails this time of year, even a Negroni.
I love this recipe, especially for a crowd. Everyone loves a margarita, right? Grab some oranges and make it for your next spring gathering. The color alone will impress your friends and the taste? Well that’s a given.
Cheers! xx
