These sweet-tart frozen blood orange margaritas are perfectly balanced and ideal for entertaining.
As we head into the busy entertaining season, I can’t think of anything more celebratory than a thick and frosty frozen margarita.
Sweet, tart and perfectly tangy, these blood orange margaritas are made with white tequila and the perfect amount of fresh lime juice.
If you can’t get your hands on blood oranges, use any orange variety you can find. Or, get crazy and swap out blood oranges with a couple scoops of fresh or frozen mango. As always, this recipe is more of a loose guideline than a strict rule book.
Whatever you do, just call your friends and invite them over. They will love this fruity, not-too-sweet margarita that puts the happy in happy hour.
Your straw is waiting.
- 2 blood oranges juiced
- 1 lime juiced
- 1 cup white tequila
- 3/4 cup triple sec
- 3-4 cups ice
- sugar to rim glass - optional
- slices blood orange and lime optional garnish
To rim the glasses, place 1/4 cup of sugar on a plate and moisten the top of each glass with a lime wedge. Run wet rim over the sugar until evenly coated.
Place all ingredients in a high speed blender (blood orange juice through ice) and puree until smooth. Pour into sugar-rimmed glasses to serve and garnish with blood orange and lime slices.
