Strawberry-Blood Orange Margarita
for each drink:
Put two strawberries, coarsely chopped, into a cocktail shaker or measuring cup and add 2 heaping teaspoons super-fine granulated sugar.  Muddle the berries and sugar together and let the mixture sit for about 5 to 10 minutes, until the strawberries have released their juice and the sugar is dissolved.  In the meantime, squeeze the juice from 1 lime and 1 1/2 medium-sized blood oranges.  You should have about a 1/2 cup of fresh citrus juice.  Add the citrus juice to the strawberry mixture along with 1 1/2 ounces of your favorite tequila, and 1/2 ounce orange liqueur (I was out of Cointreau so I used Domaine Canton ginger liqueur and it was fine).  Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into an ice-filled, salt-rimmed glass and garnish with a strawberry and an orange slice.SALUD!!!
