Blood Orange Margarita

Blood Oranges are the biggest scam of the citrus world since Meyer Lemons. I actually haven’t bought any in years, because I kept excitedly bringing bags of them home, only to cut them open and find they were barely pink inside.

I randomly picked some up last week, and lo and behold they were actually a deep ruby red once I sliced through a couple. Yes, the colour is gorgeous, but don’t try and tell me they have a “berry-like flavour”. Nice try, Galen!

Citrus Scam

Inspired by my friend Weedy’s tropical dinner party last month, I mixed up a Blood Orange Margarita. I have a nice roster of summer cocktails in the archives, so this is a nice option for the winter. I normally don’t get too excited for winter citrus, but this is something I can get on board with, especially on a dreary mid-February afternoon.
