If you can’t find fresh blood oranges this time of year, look a frozen or boxed version at gourmet stores that specialize in Italian food, like Tarry Market. Serves 8.
- 1 1/2 cups tequila
- 1 cup blood orange juice
- 1/4 cup lime juice
- 1/3 cup Cointreau
- Combine all in a pitcher. Stir. Put out a plate of salt. Use a lime wedge to wet the outside rim of the glass and dip it in salt. If you like, put the glasses in the freezer to set the salt and chill them. Shake each drink by pouring the mixture into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Strain into the chilled cocktail glass and garnish with lime twist.
