It is Blood Orange Season & I am HERE for it! Blood Oranges are my favorite seasonal fruit & to celebrate their short appearance I have been making MARGARITAS as often as possible. 

I was running low on tequila so I headed back to Total Wine & More Seattle to restock. I told the staff I was looking for a reposado tequila at a good price point & also wanted something that was good for sipping as well as in cocktails.  They pointed me to this El Padrino Reposado and it did not disappoint. It performs very well in cocktails & I have also enjoyed sipping it on the rocks so this was a very successful purchase! Thank you Total Wine & More – your staff are incredible at recommendations!
