Blood oranges don’t only add citrusy sweetness to a cocktail but also vibrant color and gorgeous presentation. Use fresh blood orange and lime juice to make this mixed drink otherwise you’ll significantly sacrifice flavor.


  • 1-1/2 ounces fresh blood orange juice
  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1 ounce Cointreau
  • 2 ounces blanco tequila
  • Lime wedge
  • Coarse salt for rimming glass
  • Blood orange wedge and fresh sage sprig to garnish


  1. Lightly dampen the rim of a cocktail glass with a lime wedge and then dip the rim into some coarse salt to adhere.
  2. Place the orange juice, lime juice, Cointreau and tequila into a shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously for 35 seconds.
  3. Strain the mixture into the prepared glass, garnish with a blood orange wedge and a sprig of fresh sage and then serve immediately.
