Today is all about an apéritif that makes makes me happy.
Scratch that. It makes me giddy.
It's that good.
I give you the Blood Orange Margarita.
"I don't know, Babe. I don't want you to suffer later."
"Do you just want to drink this because you like it that much?" he was on to me.
"Maybe," I conceded. But happy to finally get him to try one of my concoctions, I just made myself another with the juice I had left. Even though I could have easily downed three of these babies.
I'm sure these would be equally delicious with other fruit juices, but the blood orange gave it the most dazzling color. And the beauty? This drink is 100% paleo as it contains no added sugar.
While I loved it, something was definitely missing. It took me several sips before I put my finger on it.
my guacamole and you'll soothe your brain via hallucinations of rainbows and unicorns - no therapist required.
Blood Orange Margarita
2 oz agave tequila
1 oz blood orange juice
1 oz fresh lime juice
3/4 oz (or to your liking for sweetness) honey simple syrup (equal parts honey dissolved into water)
Shake all of the ingredients vigorously in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Serve in a salt rimmed glass (or without the salt, for those boys and girls who prefer clean glasses). Enjoy!
