Cream Cocktail: Blood Orange Margarita

bloodorangemargarita.jpg The Orendain family is one of the oldest names in the tequila game. Making tequila since the early 1900s, the Orendains rebranded Arette after the famous Mexican horse Arete took home gold during the 1948 London Olympics. Their Tequilas are made from 100% estate agave and fermented in open stainless steel tanks or stone vessels.

Arette’s Tequila Blanco has all the characteristics of a lowland tequila. With notes of citrus, honey, floral notes and hints of pepper, it’s a no brainer choice for margaritas. Our Blood Orange Margarita is super refreshing and easy to make - and with a splash of the Rossa Sicily Amara, you won’t need to wait for citrus season!

Blood Orange Margarita

1.5 oz Tequila Arette Blanco
.5 oz Rossa Sicily Blood Orange Amara
.75 oz simple syrup
.5 oz fresh squeezed lime
lime wedge for garnish
