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

I don’t often share cocktail recipes around here because the truth is I just don’t drink that much.  But today I’m sharing a recipe for Mango Raspberry Bellinis.  Lou and I will be drinking these on Christmas morning. It’s part of what makes our holiday magical!  Every Christmas morning we eat Patacones (a friend plantain recipe from his mother) and drink too much champagne. Then we nap, hard.  IT IS THE BEST THING EVER!!!  What are your Christmas morning traditions?  I’d like to add another to our mix!  xx- Sarah  {recipe and more after the jump}
