Blood Orange Margarita

A seasonal take on the classic Margarita, this blood orange version uses Free Spirits' The Spirit of Tequila and relies on winter-ripe blood oranges for sophisticated sour and bitter flavors (and beautiful color).


  • 2 1/2 oz The Spirit of Tequila
  • 2 oz Fresh squeezed blood orange juice
  • 1 oz Fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp agave
  • Bar spoon of vanilla extract
  • Turbinado sugar/salt mix



Rim a rocks glass with the sugar/salt mix and fill with ice.

Add all ingredients to a shaker and short shake (so as to not over dilute the tequila).

Strain into the glass and garnish with a blood orange wheel and fresh thyme sprig
