Blood Orange Margarita with Ginger

My husband was out of town during Valentine's day, but we did manage to drink a lot of these gorgeous cocktails this weekend, in honor of V-Day. They're delicious, and too gorgeous for words.

1/4 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon fresh blood-orange juice
3 tablespoons tequila
1 tablespoon Cointreau
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
Lime slice, for garnish

1. Put the grated ginger in a small sieve set over a small bowl and press to extract the juice. Combine the ginger juice with the orange juice, tequila, Cointreau and lime juice in a cocktail shaker filled with cracked ice and shake vigorously for 10 seconds. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass, garnish with the lime slice and serve.

My head hurts... but it was really good.

Vanilla Vodka works in place of Cuervo.
