Yesterday was National Margarita Day and as I was scrolling and drooling over all the images of margaritas plastered over social media obviously I had to have one! I wanted to experiment with a flavor I had not yet tried so when I saw this margarita from Confections of a Foodie Bride’s blog I knew this one was it! I have had blood oranges only a handful of times and since they happen to be in season and available in the grocery store it was a no-brianer. They totally lived up to my expectations they were so good and her recipe was perfect for 2 margaritas. I will definitely make sure there is a reminder on my calendar for next year’s for National Margarita Day!
