  • ¼ cup blood orange juice* fresh
  • 2 Tbsp. lime juice fresh
  • 1.5 oz. tequila blanco or reposado
  • 1 Tbsp. agave nectar light
  • Coarse salt
  • Additional limes


  1. Combine blood orange juice, lime juice, tequila, and agave nectar in a cocktail shaker that has been filled with ice.*

  2. Shake margarita 10-15 times or until well mixed.

  3. Take a lime wedge and swirl it around the rim of the margarita glass. Dip coated edges in a shallow plate or bowl full of coarse sea salt for a salted rim.

  4. Pour skinny margarita into glass and garnish with a lime or blood orange wedge and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

  • You can also substitute Navel oranges if you cannot find blood oranges.
  • Use a Lemon Squeezer or Citrus Juicerto get the juice from the lime and blood orange.
  • You can also just stir together the ingredients in a large glass instead of in a cocktail shaker, but make sure to remove any excess ice to get the best tasting margarita.
