BLOOD ORANGE MARGARITAS

There are endless variations for making margaritas. Spring and summer are perfect times for margaritas of all kinds. Blood oranges are available in my grocery store now. This is a delicious twist on the original margarita. 

Lee's Kitchen Tips:
Buy 5 blood oranges and you will have one or two left over for slicing.



6 oz freshly squeezed blood orange juice 
Juice of 2 limes
4 oz silver tequila
2 oz Cointreau or Triple Sec
½ packed of stevia 
2 slices blood orange, for garnish

Rub the rim of two old fashioned glasses with a wedge of blood orange or lime.
Swirl the rims into a small bowl of coarse sea salt.
Combine the ingredients into a small pitcher and stir to combine.
Fill the salted glasses with some ice cubes and pour in the cocktail.
Garnish each with a slice of blood orange.
