Honey Simple Syrup*
¼ cup water
¼ cup honey
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
2 fl. oz. honey simple syrup
4 fl. oz. blood orange juice (~4–6 medium blood oranges)
4 fl. oz. tequila
2 fl. oz. lime juice (~6–8 medium limes)
1–2 cups ice (+ more for serving)
First prepare the honey simple syrup. Add the water, honey, and vanilla to a small pot and bring to a boil over high heat. Turn heat to low and let simmer for 10 minutes (stirring periodically). Remove from heat and let cool.
Next, add 1 to 2 cups of ice to a cocktail shaker and then pour in blood orange juice, lime juice, tequila, and simple syrup. Option to add more simple syrup, depending on your preference.*
Give the shaker a good shake so that everything gets mixed together.
Serve over ice with fresh blood orange slices and a salty rim.
Blood oranges: be careful when juicing your blood oranges and they tend to be a little messy and might stain your clothes!
