Meet the Blood Orange Margarita

Beat the winter blues with a burst of sunny citrus with our Blood Orange Margarita – the most recent addition to our signature cocktail list.  This seasonal fruit is packed with vitamin C and antioxidants so it’s sure to be a bright spot on a cloudy winter day.

Our Blood Orange Margarita is made with fresh winter blood oranges, squeezed in house daily.  Mixed with Jose Cuervo Gold Tequila, Triple Sec and served on the rocks.

What makes blood oranges so red?  Anthocyanins found in the pulp and rind, a powerful antioxidant, give the oranges their special “blood” colour (this is the same pigment that turns cherries red and blueberries blue).  The oranges develop colour during the low temperatures at night

Like the watermelon margarita from the 98 days of summer, this exclusive signature drink will only be available for a limited time.
