My cousin Susannah came to town last week to celebrate her birthday. She has worked in restaurants for a long long time and always makes the best cocktails! She whipped up these AMAZING Margaritas. If you love a spicy margarita, I think you’ll love these too. They quickly became a favorite in our house!
To make the juice (will make plenty of cocktails):
32 oz 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. Strain out pepper and any seeds. Let cool, then refrigerate until cold.
To make one cocktail:
4 oz white tequila
Fresh lime juice from 1- 2 limes
1 tbsp of agave nectar
1/2 cup of juice mixture
Put all ingredients with crushed ice in cocktail shaker and shake vigorously. Pour over a glass of crushed ice.
