BLOOD ORANGE MARGARITA
WITH 2 COMMENTS
Why do I love blood orange margaritas? Blood oranges are gorgeous. I love their red, orange and pink color. Blood oranges are tarter than regular orange juice, so they work to keep the margarita not too sweet, but still refreshing. Make these vibrant cocktails between December and May when blood oranges are in season.

PASSION FRUIT TEQUILA MOJITO
WITH ONE COMMENT
There may be no better purpose for a passion fruit than a cocktail. This passion fruit mojito is fragrant and delicious and is best served on a remote island, with waterfalls, flamingos preening on the shore, dolphins frolicking in the shoreline and handsome island people playing ukuleles on the beach. If that is not possible, the drink stands on its own as a little mini-vacay.
