Brittany Everett with a wintery take on a margarita, dressed up with blood orange and ginger.
Ingredients
For garnishing all drinks:
  • ¼ cup blood orange juice
  • zest from one blood orange
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • slices of blood orange for garnish (very optional)
For each individual drink:
  • ice
  • 2 ounces blood orange juice
  • 1.5 ounces tequila
  • juice from 1 wedge of lime
  • 3 ounces strong ginger beer
Instructions
  1. Place ¼ cup blood orange juice into a bowl. In a separate bowl, combine blood orange zest and sugar.
  2. Dip the rim of a glass into juice first and then into the sugar mixture to coat the rim evenly. Fill the glass with ice.
  3. In a cocktail shaker, combine 1 cup of ice with 2 ounces blood orange juice, 1.5 ounces tequila, and the juice from a lime wedge. Shake vigorously. Pour into the prepared glass and top off with desired amount of ginger beer (see above). Stir and enjoy!
