#DOTW: Blood Orange Margarita

it’s a heatwave! It’s still morning, and it’s already 96 degrees outside. Lord have mercy! While a bunch of people are considering this a great beach day, I, for one, am staying inside as much as possible, most likely with a chilled lemonade. But later, when it cools down, I will sit outside (for as long as I can take it) and have myself a cocktail or two. Of course a Margarita, it just seems fitting for the temperatures, and hey, who doesn’t love a Margarita?

What you’ll need:

Fill a martini shaker with ice. Add all liquids and shake well.Rim a cocktail glass with salt. Add ice to the cocktail glass, and strain liquid from the shaker into the glass. Garnish with a lime and a lemon slice.

*Note: You can use fresh blood orange juice, however do add some simple syrup, as it will be a bit more sour than with the syrup.

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!
