It can also be blended

Blood Orange Margarita

Since Cinco de Mayo is this weekend. We’re also sharing some cocktails from taco nights past. Our margarita glasses get a lot of use.

Classic Margaritas

Don't even think about salting the glass


Taco night is all right with me

    Awesome round up! I have those flame dishes too. They are so fun. It is perculiar how similar our blogs are, yet how different. Our cocktail and round up will be up in the morning. I think you are going to really like this one.

    BTW, really diggin’ your margarita glasses. I have a new found love for tequila and margaritas, so perhaps I will find some new ones.

  5. Tempting me again! with all that blood orange flavour I could almost forget how much booze is in these! Great round up again!

  13. Yay!! Cinco de Mayo.. and the perfect round up of drinks! I’d better start shopping for the ingredients!

    A great lead in to the Cinco de Mayo, Greg. LOVE the colour of this cocktail and the glass is very pretty too. Blood orange is indeed a wonderful fruit and I’m certain this would make a very tasty cocktail. How come no salt on the rim? This might be delicious with the lime chili salt I have from Just a Pinch!
