When we see a "bloody" drink we tend to think of a tomato juice cocktail like the Bloody Mary, but this is not the case for this Bloody Margarita. Instead, the "blood" is that of blood orange juice which is a fantastic cocktail ingredient.

This orange juice is harder to find than the standard OJ, though there are a few brands available and they are worth searching for. This is a perfect winter margarita because that is when blood oranges are in season, so keep an eye out for them.
