Ginger Blood Orange Margaritas


Happy Halloweenmy friends!!!  I’ve got this not so spooky but definitely delicious Halloween inspired cocktail for you today- the Ginger Blood Orange Margarita!  Blood oranges are coming back into season and I couldn’t be happier about it, so you’ll be seeing a lot of them around here.  Adding them to margaritas is only the start of what I have planned.  But what a delicious and fun start it is!  Hope you have some mischief and fun ahead for holiday!  See you back here Monday!  xx- Sarah
