4ozCointreau120 ml (8 tbsp) Any orange liqueur will work
course salt and/or sugarto rim glasses, optional
Chill glasses: To chill the glasses, fill them with ice cubes.
Make blood orange limeade: Mix blood orange juice, lime juice and sugar. Stir to dissolve the sugar, about 2 minutes.
In a shaker: Add ice cubes, the blood orange limeade, tequila and Cointreau. Shake for 15 seconds to combine and cool. This drink can also just be stirred, but it won't get as cool.
Rim glasses: Add course salt (or sugar, but salt is more common) to a plate. Discard the ice cubes from the glasses, and rim with a little blood orange limeade or just more lime. Hold the glass in a 45 degree angle on the plate and give it a little turn so the salt sticks to the limeade.
Strain into glasses: Strain the blood orange margarita into the glasses. Garnish with slices of lime and blood orange, if desired.

Do not fill the container all the way up, as frozen liquid expands. If you can't find blood oranges, simply use regular oranges or more lime.Nutrition: Calories: 191 | Fat: 0.2g | Saturated Fat: 0g | Protein: 0.9g | Carbohydrate: 18g | Fiber 2.7g | Cholesterol: 0mg | Sodium: 1mg | Vitamin D: 0mcg | Calcium: 40mg | Iron: 0mg | Potassium: 164mg.
