5:00 Fridays

I have been very into blood oranges lately. I squeeze the juice into vinaigrettes, salsas, and seltzer water. My friends at Mez have shared the absolute best way to enjoy the sultry red juice of the sinisterly named blood orange.

Blood Orange Margarita

Milagro Silver Tequila
Triple Sec
Blood orange juice (Freshly squeezed is best, natch, but Whole Food’s Kennesaw brand is pretty darn good too.)

Grab your silver cocktail shaker. Tell me you're not using not using that crummy plastic shaker you got for a wedding present back in the day...from your starter marriage! Pour 1.5 ounce shot of Milagro Silver Tequila over ice. Add 1 ounce of Triple Sec and finish with blood orange juice (about 1/2 a cup). Shake well and pour into a kicky little cocktail glass or a sexy tall fancy glass. Garnish with a slice of blood orange.

I promise you'll have a bloody good time. Cheers!
