It’s a perfect morning cocktail for a fun Sunday brunch but definitely makes for a great day-drinking patio pal too. And of course, on Cinco de Mayo you’ll be the hit of the fiesta.
The Bloody Margarita Cocktail
We’ll start with the Bloody Mary part. There are many versions but the traditional recipe includes tomato juice, black pepper, celery salt, Worcestershire, and hot sauce, and of course vodka.
To make this cocktail with the margarita portion, we’ll need to add some citrus and some silver, or blanko tequila. We’ve thought about adding more booze for that citris kick, like a by using some Grand Marnier. But the better taste option is to go with orange juice.
