Neccessity is the mother of invention. Camping in Mexico is a great time to discover that the only thing left in the cooler - mango nectar, is delicious with tequila.
It is also conveniently bright orange, making it a perfect Halloween drink. It's a little sweet, so the blood orange cuts the sweetness (and adds the fun!)
If you don't have Centenario, substitute another white tequila like Don Julio Blanco.
1 ounce Centenario plato tequila
1 cup mango fruit nectar
½ ounce freshly squeezed lime
2 ½ ounces freshly squeezed blood orange juice
Fill a tall glass with ice. Add tequila, nectar and lime. Mix. Carefully spoon the blood orange juice over the top and don't mix so it drips down like blood. Oooh, scaaaaarrry!!
If you aren't up to mixing your own (and live in LA), check out Halloween Cocktails: Seizing the Spirits
