The Bloody Margarita is a delicious Margarita variation made with blood orange juice. This gives it a slightly sweeter, fruitier profile than the classic recipe, as well as a bright red hue that makes it great for Halloween parties. That said, the Bloody Margarita is fantastic all year round, whether as a midsummer refresher or a tropical escape from the dead of winter.
