Bartender: Kristen Griffin
Drink Name: Blood Orange Margarita
Recipe: One ounce blood orange juice, half an ounce Cointreau, 4 ounces of Avión Silver Tequila, juice of one lime, juice of half a lemon, splash of agave nectar. Shake. Add a splash of soda water and pour into a highball glass. Garnish with a slice of blood orange or orange.
“A blood orange is not as sweet as a regular orange, so this tastes like a tarter orange margarita,” said Griffin. “Everyone loves it; it’s a big hit.”
