{blood orange margarita}

Last year, Robert and I implemented a weekly happy hour on Friday nights. He would come home from school and make us a cocktail, while I made some type of delicious (and ridiculously unhealthy) bar food. There would be sliders and moijtos one week, wine and cheese another, and I think I even attempted chicken wings once.

I was more than ready for the weekend when Friday rolled around, and I made the executive decision to start Friday night happy hour back up again. I had picked up some blood oranges at the farmer's market on Wednesday, and I knew that they would taste great in a margarita. Robert mixed them while I made some homemade nachos, and it was a match made in heaven.
Just shake it all together with ice, and it's ready to go! Seriously though, this may have just been the best cocktail that I've ever had. 

Have you ever tried a blood orange margarita? If you try this one, you'll have to let me know!
