Sparkling Blood Orange Margarita Directions
Pour salt on a small plate. Run a wedge of lime around the rim of your margarita glass. Dip the glass into the salt so the entire rim is covered in margarita salt. Add ice cubes to the glass and set aside.
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour the tequila and freshly squeezed blood orange juice and lime juice.
Add the simple syrup and a splash of Cointreau. You can also use Triple Sec in place of the Cointreau if you are desperate but the Cointreau enhances the orange flavor.
Put the lid on the cocktail shaker and shake the sparkling blood orange margarita for 30 seconds.
Strain the margarita into your glass and garnish with a slice of blood orange or lime.
Add a splash of club soda to top to put the final touch on your sparkling blood orange margarita.
