Blood Orange–Cinnamon Margarita

When winter’s citrus season rolls around, there’s nothing like a Blood Orange Margarita, and a bit of cinnamon adds an even more delicious layer of wintry flavor.


  • 2 oz. blanco tequila
  • 1/2 oz. fresh lime juice
  • 3/4 oz. fresh blood orange juice
  • 3/4 oz. cinnamon syrup
  • Tools:shaker, strainer
  • Glass:Old Fashioned
  • Garnish:blood orange slice


Add all the ingredients to a shaker. Add ice and shake to chill. Strain over fresh ice into an Old Fashioned glass. Garnish.

Tip: As an alternative to making cinnamon syrup, and for a bit more dramatic presentation, substitute plain simple syrup (1:1) for the cinnamon syrup and rim the glass with a salt of equal parts kosher salt and freshly grated cinnamon and a half part of granulated white sugar.
