When the Sky is Falling…Make Blood Orange Margaritas!

Isn’t she lovely?!

I’ve had this recipe for so long it’s not true…and also, I have no inkling of the original source. Apologies to the brilliant individual who came up with it! And if that individual is you, please reach out so I can give you proper credit!! 🙌🏻

Ingredients (for 1 serving — though can be multiplied easily for a crowd!)
½ c tequila (yes, you read that right!!)
4 T freshly squeezed juice (I typically start with 4 lemons, 2 limes and half an orange, then add more in increments until I have enough)
2 T honey

Pour the tequila into a measuring cup (I’m usually making a batch of 2-6 of these at a time, so start with a cup size that’s large enough to handle the final liquid amount) and measure honey into the measuring cup to let it get comfortable with the booze. I give it a stir at this point and then turn my attention to the juice — squeeze those lovely little citruses and stir them all together. Going back to the boozy part, stir the honey in with vigor (but no spilling!!) until it’s a nice, golden mixture. Measure the juice in, give it another stir, then pour into a glass and top with a fair bit of ice. And sip away!!

    I love this recipe. I just need some butter/honey/truffle salt/Parmesan popcorn to go with it.
