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!
