BLOOD ORANGE MARGARITAS  FOR A CROWD

Serves 10-12

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 cups fresh blood orange juice
  • 1 cup fresh lime juice
  • 3 cups silver tequila
  • 1½ cups triple sec (or other orange flavored liqueur)
  • ¼ cup superfine sugar
  • lime wedge
  • kosher salt
  • blood orange slices

DIRECTIONS

Place juices, tequila, triple sec and sugar in a large pitcher. Stir until sugar is dissolved and chill well. Rim edges of each glass with lime wedge and salt. Divide margaritas among glasses and garnish with blood orange slices.

"Triple sec is the most well-known orange liqueur, but because this drink uses blood orange juice, why not use a blood orange liqueur? I personally love Solerno from Italy. It is super tasty and can be found in a ton of liquor stores in the area.”
 —Matthew Burns, bartender and general manager at Sangria, Mahwah
