Blood Orange Margarita with Smoky Salt
This Fresh Blood Orange Margarita has an optional smoky salted rim. The fresh citrus flavors of the blood orange make this a sweet and tart cocktail, and the smoked paprika salted rim gives it a little something extra.

*If you prefer a sweeter drink, add simple syrup. I enjoyed my margaritas without any simple syrup and found that the blood orange juice added enough sweetness for me. You may want to make the drink without simple syrup, taste it, and add the simple syrup if you would like it sweeter. Simple syrup is easy to make, just mix one part water to one part sugar.
Margaritas usually call for triple sec or Cointreau, but I decided to use Grand Marnier because I really like the flavor.
Juice yield will depend on individual oranges, but I found that 5-6 oranges made about half a cup of juice.
