Blood Orange & Ginger Margarita

Just thinking about this delicious margarita makes us drool. It combines the earthy spiciness of ginger with the bittersweet pungency of blood orange and makes a gorgeously saffron-colored drink.


  •  1/4 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger
  •  1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon fresh blood-orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons tequila
  • 1 tablespoon Cointreau
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • Lime slice, for garnish


1. Put the grated ginger in a small sieve set over a small bowl and press to extract the juice. Combine the ginger juice with the orange juice, tequila, Cointreau and lime juice in a cocktail shaker filled with cracked ice and shake vigorously for 10 seconds. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass, garnish with the lime slice and serve.
