Along with Drink of the Week, I came up with a nifty Halloween cocktail made from blood oranges. Get it? “I vant to suck your blooooood (orange margarita).” Halloween!
If you haven’t used this fruit before, blood oranges produce a beautiful ruby-colored juice that apparently reminds some people of blood. The margarita is fairly straight forward and very tasty.
Blood Orange Margarita
- 1 1/2 oz tequila
1 oz Grand Marnier (or triple sec)
1 1/2 oz blood orange juice
1 slice of blood orange to garnish
In a shaker, combine the tequila, Grand Marnier, and blood orange juice. Fill the shaker halfway up with ice. Shake thoroughly and strain into a glass. Garnish with a slice of orange. Voila!
We also made up another Halloween cocktail, which will be up later this week. Stay tuned.
