Playing How To Make A Blood Orange Margarita | John Cusimano

John gives the margarita an Italian spin by making it with blood orange juice, which is as common in Italy as classic OJ is over here.

Cointreau is John's go-to, but any orange-flavored liqueur will work.

John made this margarita to go with Rach's Everything Chili With Tortilla Tops.


  • 2 ounces reposado tequila
  • 1 ounce orange-flavored liqueur (John likes Cointreau)
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • 1 ounce orange, blood orange or clementine juice
  • Orange peel, for garnish


Serves: 1


Add tequila, orange liqueur, lime juice and orange juice to an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously and strain into an ice-filled rocks glass. Garnish with orange peel.

Always drink responsibly.
