There’s nothing quite like the sweet raspberry citrus flavor of the blood orange, and when winter citrus season rolls around, it must be taken full advantage of. I like incorporating them into sweets of all kinds, but a sweet and tangy margarita showcases their flavor perfectly! Refreshing, fruity, and a gorgeous hue of pink, it holds a place all its own on the bar-top. – Eva

• Fill a rimmed plate with water so that it is ¼ inch deep. Pour the sea salt onto another small plate, patting it down flat so that it is about ¼ inch deep, as well. Flip your margarita glasses upside down and dip the rim in the water, then dip it in the sea salt. Set it aside right side up.

• Blend all remaining ingredients together in a blender or food processor until smooth. Evenly distribute between the 4 margarita glasses. Serve immediately.
