Hand Me A Drink

Cinco de Mayo seems like the appropriate time to post a margarita recipe, but I’m not that timely.

The 7th of May also seems like an appropriate time to post a margarita recipe. At least that’s what I’m telling myself… today… on the 7th of May…

Truthfully, I made this recipe three months ago. You know, waaaay back when blood oranges were abundant, seasonal, and easy to find.

No blood oranges at your grocery store anymore? Swap them for regular oranges or grapefruit. A margarita is a margarita is a margarita. I’m sure it’s five o’clock somewhere.

This post only needs one picture, but I got a little artsy when I made this drink…

DSC_0073Can I comment on the beauty of these oranges? So B-E-A-utiful.


This is either artistic or gross… you decide. It’s overexposed as well, but I’m not going to point out all of my photography failures.

And yes, I realize my ‘blood’ orange margaritas look less ruby red then desired, but I had a lot of not-very-red blood oranges. The taste was delicious. The color left something to be desired. Namely, something red. Life goes on. Let’s drink to that.
