Scream Bloody Margaritas

As prepared by Girl Versus Dough,

When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade.


When life gives you blood oranges, you make these delicious Bloody Margaritas, then get your monster mash on.

A Halloween party just isn’t complete without these festive citrus-y cocktails on the menu. Not only are they unique in flavor thanks to the taste of sweet and tangy blood orange juice, they also look the part with their natural deep-red color. No costume necessary for these bad boys - juice a cocktail glass and your best cauldron - er, cocktail shaker, and you’ve got a great party drink!

Bloody Margarita prep

First, concoct some simple syrup. Bring equal parts water and sugar to a boil and stir until all the sugar is dissolved. Then, remove it from the heat and let it cool completely before using it in your drinks.

 

Bloody Margarita ingredients

Grab all your ingredients. We’ve got tequila – duh – and blood orange juice (sometimes called “red orange” juice in stores) – double duh – as well as triple sec (an orange-flavored liqueur), fresh limes and an orange and coarse sea salt. You’ll also need a splash or two of that simple syrup you made. No spooky mystery ingredients here – just fresh citrus and liquor is all you need for these refreshing cocktails.
