Monday Mixer – Blood Orange Margarita

Blood Orange MargaritaHere’s Monday’s Mixer for you. Perfect for poolside parties or just right for that intimate mixing for two.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup blood orange juice

2 tbsps lime juice (freshly squeezed)

3 tbsps triple sec or Cointreau.

2 – 3 shots of 1800 Silver Tequila. Use a blood orange slice for garnish. Powder with sugar to dress it up. Simple, sweet and delicious. I prefer just a dash more Cointreau.

Summer is here and so is the heat and the Mondays come, once a week. So next Monday treat yourself to a classic, the Vodka Gimlet.

You’ll need:

1 1/2 oz. Vodka
1 oz. Lime Juice
1 tsp. Sugar, powdered

Shake ingredients well in a cocktail shaker with ice, strain into a Cocktail glass and garnish with a lime slice or for something a bit more fancy, peel a lime curl and float in the glass or drape from the edge of the glass in a spiral. Simple, refreshing and pleasing to the eye. Come back next Monday for another Mixer and feel free to add your own spin on this classic in the comment section.
