Blood Orange Margarita

Winter and early spring is the best time of year for blood oranges, so it's a perfect time to whip up this drink. It's flavor is just as bright and vibrant as it's color.

1 blood orange slice
Kosher or sea salt
3 ounces fresh blood orange juice
¾ ounces fresh lime juice
2 ounces tequila
1 ounce simple syrup
Rub the rim of an old fashioned glass with the edge of a blood orange slice. Swirl the rim in salt. Combine all remaining ingredients into an ice-filled cocktail shaker and shake for 15 seconds. Put a few cubes of ice in the salted glass. Strain the cocktail into the glass and enjoy.
