Blood Orange Ginger Margarita {fresh-style}

This Blood Orange Ginger Margarita is prepared fresh-style not using any orange liqueur or frozen mix. The preparation of tequila, fresh lime juice and agave, along with fresh blood orange juice muddled with fresh ginger, leave a full-flavored, natural refreshing cocktail. Be sure to taste along the way as citrus fruit can vary in sweetness and tartness. More agave nectar may be added to make the margarita sweeter to your taste.

Ingredients

  • 3 ounces Silver Tequila (preferably organic)
  • 1 1/2 ounces freshly squeezed Lime Juice
  • 1 ounce Light Agave Nectar
  • Juice of 2 Blood Oranges (aproximately 2 ounces)
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh Ginger Root; sliced or diced

Instructions

  1. In a glass or jar, combine the blood orange juice and ginger. Muddle the ginger. Allow the mixture to sit for 20 minutes. Taste and if the flavor is desirable, strain retaining the liquid (or allow to sit longer before straining). NOTE: chilled liquids will not taste as strongly as room temperature liquids.
  2. Combine the blood orange-ginger juice, tequila, lime juice and agave in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into 2 Old Fashioned glasses full of fresh ice.

Recipe Notes

TIP: To yield more juice from fresh citrus fruit, place them in the microwave for 10 seconds before juicing.
