Blood Orange habanero Margarita  | Cocktails

A Spicy Summer has almost come to a close.

 

When you’re looking for a spicy margarita that’s a little different than normal, the habanero blood orange margarita recipe is one you’ll want to try. It offers a fascinating taste experience through a special homemade ingredient and it’s easy to mix up.

This drink celebrates the blood orange, a citrus fruit that is typically in season from December to April, though the bottled juice is available year-round. The sweeter citrus is paired in the drink with fresh habanero pepper in a puree that is easy to make ahead of time. From there, the drink uses a smooth tequila and (a preferably homemade) sour mix.

The cocktail’s finishing touch is a mole negro rim (which you’ll actually add before mixing) to give the margarita a spiced dark chocolate accent. Using a prepared mole sauce, such as Doña Maria Mexican Mole Sauce, makes this addition quick and easy. By rimming only half the glass, you can enjoy the option of mole or no mole on each sip.
