The combination of this exotic fruit along with the deep rich "blood" color, can be all the rage at your Halloween Bash this year! Just a few simple tweaks and the classic margarita becomes a dark and sexy party cocktail, perfect for the blood thirsty vampires, ghosts and ghouls to feast on.
The recipe below makes two, but bulk it up and add club soda or your favorite seltzer and put it in a beverage server, with multiple slices of blood orange floating (and maybe even a few floating vampire's teeth, and you have the perfect party signature cocktail!
1. 1 ounce White Tequila
2. 1 ounce Grand Marnier or Cointrueau - personal preference as to which you choose
3. 3 ounces fresh squeezed blood orange juice
4. 2 lime wedges squeezed
5. 1 tsp Simple syrup or honey
Shake vigorously in a cocktail mixer with ice. Rim glass with Hawaiian Black Sea Salt (or if you prefer sweeter, you may use black colored sugar) and pour cocktail over ice. Garnish with a slice of blood orange and any Halloween inspired decoration of your choosing such as a plastic spider or eyeball tipped cocktail stir.
Be creative with it and have fun! If you want to have some more fun with it you can pour the cocktail into some test tubes or blood vials (vinegar vials) and use them as Blood shots! You can find them on Amazon or at your local apothecary or health food store.
