In this drink, the blood orange, a citrus fruit in season for about a month from December to April, is celebrated. Blood orange juice can be found year-round. To make this drink, a lime slice is paired with a fresh habanero pepper puree, making it easy to make ahead of time. This is then combined with smooth tequila and a (homemade) sour mix. You may want to consider adding habanero blood orange to your margarita recipe if you are looking for a spicy drink that is a little different from your usual. You can enjoy an interesting taste experience with this homemade recipe, and it is easy to mix up. This margarita’s rim is made from mole negro, which you’ll actually add before mixing. It’s spiced dark chocolate taste complements the cocktail’s lime-based flavors. It is easy to add mole sauce to this dish if you use a pre-packaged sauce, such as the Doña Maria Mexican Mole Sauce.
- Choosing not to rim the glass on half of the glasses lets you choose the amount of mole or not on every sip.
- Purees boiled at too high a temperature (as in the case of the pepper in the juice) can be “burned” if the pepper has remained in the juice too long.
- As soon as you remove the pan from the heat, it’s time for a quick taste test, and if you like it spicy, you can cook it longer.
- Bottle the finished puree under a tight seal. It is best to keep it in the refrigerator and use it within two weeks.
