Blood Orange Jalapeno Margarita

I wish some produce are available year round.

Blood oranges are one of those stunning fruits with such a vibrant red flesh and more intensely flavored than a regular orange.

Originating in Mexico, margarita is a popular cocktail made with tequila, triple sec and lime or lemon juice. Here is a variation on this classic drink with blood oranges and meyer lemons which makes one yummy drink!
