Happy September friends! I'm sad to see summer go so quickly but I'm so excited for all-things-fall which include cocktails with a sweet kick. I'm partnering with Agavero Orange Liqueur to share a super easy margarita you'll want to add this to your "Must Try" Pinterest board.
Because this margarita is so easy to whip up in a flash and uses the least amount of ingredients, it's my go-to for spontaneous get-togethers or for dinner parties. The sweet concoction is always a crowd-pleaser and the spicy rim can be customized (or removed entirely) to one's liking.
The Recipe vv
Blood Orange Marg!
Now, don't let the name "Blood Orange Margarita" fool you. We won't be squeezing blood oranges until the sun comes up. Instead, we'll be relying on Agavero Orange Liqueur to fool our taste buds into thinking we did. Agavero Orange is a blend of 100% blue agave tequila, infused with the essence of oranges and pure agave nectar. Basically, the perfect addition and complement to any margarita recipe.
You'll Need Per Glass
- 2 oz Gran Centenario Tequila Plata
- .5 oz Agavero Orange Liqueur
- 3 oz pomegranate juice
- lime juice (use 1/2 of a lime)
Use sliced oranges for garnishing!
** Feel free to add a splash of soda water if you find this too sweet!
For the Rim
- 2 tsp salt
- 2 tsp chili powder
- mix both in a small bowl
- rub the rim of glass with a lime wedge
- dredge in the chili-salt mix
** Feel free to skip this step!
What I like to do is grab my metal shaker, feel it halfway with ice and add in all the liquid ingredients. Cover it up and shake my little heart out. Or, for at least half a minute.
Afterwards, I set the shaker to the side and prep my glasses with the spicy rim. Life hack, it's a lot easier to pour the rim mix into a flat plate and then dredge your glasses through it. After that, fill the glasses with ice.
Once the glasses are ready, pour in the tasty margarita (using the strainer) and serve with an orange slice.
Now, the most important step - enjoy the drink!
