Spicy Blood Orange Margarita
A delicious and refreshing recipe from Alex Thomopoulos that makes four.


  • 1-cup reposado tequila
  • 2 cups blood orange juice (fresh squeezed is obviously better)
  • 1/4 cup mint leaves
  • 1⁄4 cup lime juice, reserve two lime rinds
  • 2 TBSP honey
  • 1 jalepeno (take seeds and ribs out if you like less spicy)


Put lime juice, two leftover rinds, honey, jalapeno, and mint into a pitcher. Take a wooden spoon or muddler and muddle the ingredients together. Add tequila and blood orange juice and stir to combine. Rim each glass with some lime juice, and dip into a mixture of salt and chili powder. Pour enough ice into glass and fill your glass up with the margarita!
