Blood Orange Margarita Ingredients
Like most cocktails, this blood orange margarita recipe doesn’t require much. But to make it better than any other cocktail, there are a few ingredients that are extra and add more flair and flavor. There’s nothing wrong with dumbing it down a bit and just using the main ingredients like blood orange juice, tequila, and agave nectar.
But you’ll want to add freshly squeezed ingredients to go above and beyond. There is nothing like adding fresh lime juice, a lime wedge and blood orange slice for garnish and of course some coarse salt for the rim.
