I’d Rather Fall in Tequila 


I get it. It’s a food blog! But Blood oranges are food and can you blame a girl, who barely gets to soak up the sun, for making too many summer cocktails? Plus I threw in some salt & paprika so it’s practically curry!

 Besides with an overdose of bright sunshine and an outpour of visiting friends & family, it would be incredibly insensitive of me not make these weekly cocktail posts mandatory! #cocktailfridays 

If anyone has an objection to this, please speak now or hold ur peace forever. Though If you ask me, you’d rather be holding one of these Skinny Blood Orange Margaritas!👆🏼 

Considering how difficult it is to find fresh blood oranges, feel free to swap it with oranges or tangerines if it makes your life easier. I’m all about making life easier. Clearly explains the Friday cocktails! 


  • Ice
  • Juice of 1 Blood orange (minus a wedge for garnish) 
  • Juice of 1/2 a lime + 1 wedge for garnish 
  • 1 sachet truvia (or sweetener of choice) dissolved in 1+1/2 oz water 
  • 1/4 oz Grand Marnier 
  • 1 + 1/2 oz tequila (preferably anejo)


  1. Fill the cocktail shaker a little over half with ice. Add all the ingredients (minus the garnishes) and shake till the shaker is frosted on the outside.
  2. Fill a rocks glass with ice and garnish with lime and blood orange wedges. 
  3. Strain the cocktail over the ice and serve. Or chug! 

P.S. I rimmed it with Smoked paprika + salt + sugar!

  1. Objection? Lady, there was ‘Kun Fayakun’ from ‘Rockstar’ playing while reading this post & still is while writing this comment. Exercise all your creative power as you like it. Zero fucks to the haters 🙂 P.S. So what if one is a teetotaller? 😛
