The folks at Peligroso Tequila, makers of 100% Blue Agave Tequila grown and harvested on a private estate in the highlands of Jalisco Mexico, share this spicy margarita recipe. It features blood orange, a deliciously complex take on orange juice that’ll give your margaritas a really different flavor.
They recommend using Peligroso Silver Tequila, but you can substitute any high-quality silver tequila.
