We love tequila. Actually, we love good tequila. Lucky for us (and you), Cabo Wabo is bringing their lineup of top-shelf booze to our May 3st of the Month.
So we thought we should show them some love and play around with some cocktails.
Most people often gravitate towards margaritas when it comes to cocktails and with good reason. Tequila is a natural for pairing with tart citrus juices. But margaritas are just the start of the great cocktails you can make with tequila.
For this one, you'll definitely want to grab fresh blood oranges and juice them. Like with anything else, fresh is best! The complexity of the blood oranges is a great match for Cabo Wabo Reposado, which has a little more depth of flavor than blanco tequila. Then we added a little heat with the help of Ancho Reyes. We've used this stuff before and we love it.
Combine all ingredients in an ice-filled cocktail shaker, cover and shake to chill before straining into a chilled martini glass. If you feel festive, throw a piece of blood orange on the rim to garnish.
