Blood Orange-Habanero Margaritas

My cousin Susannah & her boyfriend Ronnie came to town last week to celebrate her birthday.  Susannah always makes the best cocktails!  She whipped up these AMAZING Margaritas.  They quickly became a favorite in our house!
To make the juice:
1 carton/ container of Blood Orange Juice
1 Habanero Pepper, quartered
Bring these 2 ingredients to a boil over medium-heat, then reduce heat to low-medium and simmer for 10 minutes. Let cool then refrigerate until cold.
4 oz white tequila
Fresh lime juice from 1 lime
4 large squirts of agave nectar
1/2 cup of juice mixture
Put all ingredients with ice in cocktail shaker and shake vigorously.  Pour over a glass of crushed ice.
