AUTHOR Olmeca Barman
1/2 cup of tequila
1/2 cup of blood orange juice (about 4 blood oranges)
1 oz of agave nectar or simple syrup
1 1/2 tablespoons orange liqueur (Cointreau)
1 lime, cut into wedges (to be squeezed)

It's time to whip up some blood orange margaritas! Here's how to do it: Start with some fresh blood oranges and tequila. You'll need these for the base of your margarita. Add lime juice, orange liqueur, and simple syrup—this will give your margarita a little kick, along with sweetness! Next, dip a glass rim into water so that it sticks better to the salt (you can also use sugar if you prefer). Fill your glass with ice cubes until it's almost full (you'll want enough room for all those other ingredients). Then pour in your margarita base overtop of them—and voila! You have yourself a refreshing Blood Orange Margarita!
