Recipe below + enjoy!

INGREDIENTS:

MARGARITA
– 2 ounces silver/blanco tequila
– 2 ounces fresh blood orange juice (about 1 large blood orange, juiced)
– 1 ounce fresh lime juice (about 1 lime, juiced)
– 1 teaspoon light agave nectar
– 1 tiny drop pure vanilla extract (optional)

SALT AND BROWN SUGAR RIM
– 2 ounces silver/blanco tequila
– 2 ounces fresh blood orange juice (about 1 large blood orange, juiced)
– 1 ounce fresh lime juice (about 1 lime, juiced)
– 1 teaspoon light agave nectar
– 1 tiny drop pure vanilla extract (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

1. Mix together the salt and sugar on a small plate (preferably one just slightly larger than the top of your margarita glass). Run a wedge of lime around the top of your glass. Dip the top of the glass into the salt blend at a 45-degree angle and roll it from side to side to catch the salt. Add ice cubes to your glass and set it aside.

2. Fill a small cocktail shaker with ice. Pour in the tequila, freshly squeezed blood orange and lime juice and agave nectar. If desired, add a drop of vanilla extract (don’t pour it straight from the bottle, I used the blunt end of a fork as a dropper).

3. Put on the lid and shake for 30 seconds. Strain the liquid into your glass and garnish with a slice of blood orange, if desired.
