So once again, I am posting my very favorite type of cocktail--
This one is a super fabulous Blood Orange Margarita.
It is sweet, a little bit tart, and very, very dangerous.
I really don't know what I can say about these margaritas other than they are spectacular.
(I found the recipe here and if you get a chance, you really need to check out her site.
It is full of gorgeous, delicious food.)
(slightly adapted from How Sweet It Is)
2 ounces tequila
1 ounce Grand Mariner
1 1/2 ounces simple syrup
1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
2 ounces blood orange juice
salt for the rim, lime/orange wedges for garnish
Rim the edge of your glass with a lime wedge and dip in margarita salt. Fill the glass with ice. In a cocktail shaker, combine tequila, Grand Mariner, simple syrup blood orange and lime juice with ice, and shake for about 30 seconds. Pour over ice and squeeze in lime and orange slices.
