It’s a fiesta here today on A Touch of Teal! Those of you that have been following me for a while know that margaritas are my go-to libation and I love how easy Master of Mixes makes it for me to enjoy a craft-quality cocktail at home. (You can check out my past recipes with Master of Mixes here and here.) That’s why I’m super excited to share these Blood Orange Margaritas today! And even though Cinco de Mayo is about a month away, these would be the perfect twist on the lime classic.
If you take a look at the photos in today’s post, you may notice something exciting—Master of Mixes has a remixed look! I personally love this sleek new look, and inside is the same great taste we all know and love. The new look—which, I think, would look super cute on a styled bar cart!—was designed to highlight the delicious fruit taste that comes through in each flavor. As an added bonus, there are easy recipes on each bottle so you can take your mixology skills to the next level. The new bottles should be rolling out to your local retailers and grocery stores soon—let me know when you first spot them!
My sister and I had ourselves a little fiesta when we were shooting these photos—it was the first truly warm day here in DC and these Blood Orange Margaritas were a refreshing way to cool off and enjoy the afternoon! Plus, since Master of Mixes imports single-pressed, never-concentrated blood orange juice from the growing regions of Italy, the flavor is unreal.
Making these yourself at home is foolproof. I like my margaritas frozen, so I blend together a large handful of ice with two ounces of tequila and four ounces of the Master of Mixes Blood Orange Margarita Mix. If you prefer your margs on the rocks, simply fill a shaker with ice, two ounces of tequila, and four ounces of the blood orange mix. Shake well and then strain into an ice-filled glass. This mix would also taste great with bourbon, rum, vodka, or gin.
Cheers—or as I will be saying on Cinco de Mayo, salud!
