I wanted to make Blood Orange Margaritas for Cinco de Mayo but didn’t get to the grocery store in time. Since there were Cara Cara oranges in the fruit bowl, so I decided to go with them. After consulting several recipes online, I created my own recipe and if I do say so myself, these Margaritas are perfect for a party or for any night you feel like a little celebrating is in order.
Cara Cara Margaritas
(Serves 3-6, depending on glass size)
1 cup Cara Cara orange juice
1/4 cup lime juice
3/4 cup Tequila
1/3 cup Cointreau or other triple sec
1/4 cup simple syrup
about 20 ice cubes
Stir ingredients in a pitcher and serve.
