Is it a bloody mary? Is it a margarita?

It’s both!

If you feel like celebrating Cinco de Mayo all year long and woke up this craving a little tequila, this is the drink for you. I’ve combined my favorite parts of a traditional bloody Mary with my favorite parts of a margarita.

Bloody Margarita Cocktail

Some of my favorite traditional components of a bloody Mary include tomato juice, celery salt, Worcestershire, and hot sauce, all of which I included here. You may notice that the Horseradish is missing – personally, I didn’t think that was a good addition to this drink.

If you can’t bear the thought of a Bloody Mary without some horseradish, add it but in very small doses. Horseradish is one of those ingredients where too much comes quickly.

To make this cocktail a half margarita, I had to do more than just replace the vodka with tequila. Margaritas usually include something with an orange citrus flavor, like Grand Marnier. Instead of adding more alcohol, I decided to add orange juice.

Blend it up, pour it into your glass and enjoy – its refreshing and would be a great addition to a fiesta themed brunch.
