This strawberry and blood orange margarita is the perfect seasonal cocktail to welcome spring. From food blogger Beth of Tasty Yummies, the bright and vibrant alcoholic beverage will instantly take you to a tropical destination.

While both these fruits are currently in season in Southern California, you can make your own substitutions, such as regular oranges or frozen strawberries. The blood orange margarita calls for other ingredients including fresh lime juice, tequila, Cointreau, Triple Sec or another orange liqueur. If you prefer it sweeter, you can also add a natural sweetener like honey or maple syrup. For serving, you can add orange or lime slices, sliced strawberries and kosher salt for the rim of the glass. Pink Himalayan sea salt is another option.
