Blood Orange Margarita Recipe

It’s time for happy hour and we have a simple and delicious margarita recipe you are going to want to try!  We were recently introduced to Mongibello Juice, which comes all the way from Sicily.  We were excited to partner with them and were asked to create a recipe using their orange juice.  So of course, margarita came to mind.
