Honey Simple Syrup

Blood Orange Margarita

  • 2 oz. honey simple syrup
  • 4 oz. blood orange juice ~4-6 medium blood oranges
  • 4 oz. high-quality tequila
  • 2 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.

Tips & Notes

  • Blood oranges: be careful when juicing your blood oranges and they tend to be a little messy and might stain your clothes!
