#DOTW: Blood Orange Margarita

Blood Orange Margharita

It is June, and I’m officially kicking off the summer drinks. A Margharita is a must in the warm weather, but why not kick it up a notch with a little flavoring? I recently had a Blood Orange Margharita, and I just couldn’t get enough of it. It’s pretty simple, all you have to do is make a classic Margharita and add Blood Orange syrup or puree to it. If you want an extra fresh taste, add a peeled wedge of orange or blood orange into the martini shaker in exchange for the Triple sec. Yummmmmmmy!!Cheers!


What you’ll need:2 oz Don Julio
Quality Tequila of your choice

1 oz Triple Sec

1/2 oz Lime juice

1/2 oz Blood Orange syrup or puree

pinch of salt

Wet the rim of the glass with a lime wedge all around, then dip it into rock salt, crystal salt, or even regular salt. Combine all ingredients in a Martini shaker. Shake well with ice, and pour into the glass. Decorate with a lime slice.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
