Day of the Dead Blood Orange Margarita

Few things make me happier than a margarita. Why not have tequila bring people together? So without further ado...

Blood Orange Margaritas
makes 8 stiff drinks

2 1/2 cups silver tequila
1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1 cup freshly squeezed blood orange juice
1 cup cointreau
1/4 cup simple syrup

Stir all ingredients in a pitcher. Put out glasses, a bowl of ice and lime & blood orange wedges, for garnish. Let guests pour over ice and enjoy.

We like an especially tart margarita, if you like something sweeter, increase the amount of simple syrup, up to 3/4 of a cup.

Bottoms up!
