Ingredients
  1. 4 large blood oranges
  2. 3 limes
  3. 3 tsp agave nectar
  4. 3 oz tequila
  5. 1 ½ oz triple sec
  6. salt + lime for rim
  7. Garnish with dehydrated blood orange*
Instructions
  1. Juice blood oranges and limes over a mesh strainer to ensure there is no pulp in your cocktail.
  2. Add agave syrup, tequila, and triple sec.
  3. In a blender, add the mixture plus 1 cup of ice to start. Blend fully and add more ice if needed, blend until a slushy texture is formed.
  4. You can serve immediately by rimming a glass with salt but I prefer to place the mixture in the freezer for 1 hour before serving time so it’s really slushy, almost dessert-like!
  5. *For the dehydrated blood orange simply cut thin slices of 1 blood orange and place them on a baking sheet in the oven at the lowest setting for around 6 hours (mine was 170 degrees). I like to do this the night before so I have plenty of time to allow the oranges to fully dehydrate.
