Blood Orange Margaritas
adapted from White on Rice Couple
6 ounces of fresh-squeezed blood orange juice fresh
4 ounces of high-quality tequila (we use Patron)
2 ounces of cointreau
1-2 teaspoons of agave nectar
kosher salt, for rimming the glasses
1. Pour a generous amount of salt on a small plate. Next, wet the rims of your glasses either with water or the edge of a blood orange slice. Place the glass, rim side-down, on the plate and swirl to get an even distribution of salt on the rim. Repeat with the second glass. Place several ice cubes in each glass.
2. Combine all cocktail ingredients in a cocktail shaker, along with a handful of ice. Shake for 15 seconds or so.
3. Strain cocktail into the glass and garnish with a thin orange slice.
