MARGARITAS

We made this series to tell a story about margaritas. They're the national drink of Texas, in spring and summer (and fall and winter...); perfect for passing the day, from late afternoon into the humid evening.

Fresh squeezed blood orange margarita

2 shots tequila
1 shot Cointreau
1 cup freshly squeezed blood orange juice (about 4 oranges)
a generous drizzle of agave
ice
salt for rim (we like a mix of black sea salt, red tea and pink salt but any old salt will do)
lime wedges for squeezing

Salt the rims of glasses and fill with ice. Place all ingredients in a shaker. Shake it up and pour into prepared glasses. Garnish with lime wedges.

If you don't want to leave the porch, we (highly) recommend doubling the recipe, making an ice bucket and a pitcher of margaritas.

Blood orange and grapefruit is one possibility.
