These blood orange margaritas are definitely a level up from the traditional lime margarita we all know and love. Deliciously refreshing, they are quick to whip up and unique enough for any occasion!
A simple sweetness comes from both the blood oranges and a generous drizzle of Taylor Pass Manuka Honey. This compliments the sour bite of lime juice in the margarita as well as your favorite silver tequila. The citrus and honey flavors go great together and make up the ideal foundation for this cocktail. And bonus: Taylor Pass Manuka Honey’s antibacterial properties and health benefits mean you can feel great about each sip.
It’s easy to make these in a big batch for a crowd when entertaining, or simply shake up one or two for an easy weeknight drink with dinner! We recommend squeezing the lime juice and the blood oranges fresh for ultimate flavor — so go ahead and skip the bottled stuff. And for those who like a salted rim, this recipe experiments with a blend of both coarse salt and lime zest.
This brings even more color to the bold and bright cocktails and an extra edge of sour flavor when you go for a sip. And if you don’t have a cocktail shaker, it’s just as easy to stir the ingredients together for a perfectly balanced margarita!
