Hello, Summer. You have been quite lovely of late. You are lovin’ on my garden with sweet sun kisses and my tomatoes and strawberries are therefore becoming more awesome every day. If you could just slow down a little that would be great, too.
Blood Orange Margarita
(adapted from Mix Shake Stir by Danny Meyer’s-love this book!)
1 1/2 oz Tequila
3/4 oz Orange Liqueur
3/4 oz Lemon juice
3/4 oz Lime juice
3/4 oz blood orange juice
2 oz simple syrup
salt, flakes (I used kosher because that’s all I had)
slice of blood orange for garnish
Run a lime around the rim of the glass and dip in salt. Add all ingredients to your shaker with ice. Shake for a few then pour in your glass. Add garnish and hand over to a friend with a smile.
