CINCO DE MAYO: Blood Orange Margarita

Still looking for a special way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo?

Combine the ever-popular Margarita with luscious blood orange juice. This recipe includes the traditional lime juice via the sour mix, and layers it with the flavor of blood orange.

Thanks to Tequila Avión for this recipe:

    2. Shake and strain; serve over fresh ice. Garnish with an orange twist.
