Blood Orange Gose Margarita is a colorful and festive cocktail using both beer and tequila for a refreshing beverage perfect to celebrate Cinco de Mayo
It’s Margarita Week!
What better way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo than with a collection of all things margarita! Kate at Hola Jalapeno has rounded up 7 days worth of margarita cocktail recipes and margarita inspired food recipes from food bloggers and influencers from all around the interwebs to bring you everything you could possibly need all in one place. Be sure to swing over to Kate’s Margarita Week page and keep checking back because the list gets updated daily. You won’t want to miss any of these delicious recipes.
My contribution is a Blood Orange Gose Margarita. I was inspired by a Blood Orange Gose beer from Anderson Valley Brewing Company. This beer is tart, fruity, and refreshing and in my opinion a perfect addition to this margarita (and magically delicious on its own).
Happy Margarita Week and have a fun and safe Cinco de Mayo celebration! Cheers!
Blood Orange Gose Margarita
- Juice of 1 blood orange about 6 tablespoons
- 8 ounces silver tequila
- 4 ounces triple sec
- 1 can blood orange gose beer
- Margarita salt for the rim
- Lime and blood orange slices to garnish optional
Combine blood orange juice, tequila, and triple sec in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake
Pour some beer in a bowl and margarita salt in another bowl
Dip the rims of two tall pint size glasses into the beer then the salt to coat
Add ice to the glasses, pour tequila mixture over ice, top with remaining beer, garnish with orange and lime slices if using
- This recipe made two Blood Orange Gose Margaritas
- I didn’t use lime juice because this beer is a sour style gose and it’s a perfect balance to the sweetness of the juice and triple sec
- I used Blood Orange Gose from Anderson Valley Brewing Company – I usually stick to North Carolina breweries, but I also happen to really love Anderson Valley and we can actually get it here

Thankfully we are the bestest of buddies, and you already explained to me what a “gose” is! 🙂 BUT, I had NO idea your gose margarita would be THIS stunning!!! SWOON! This is so gorgeous, Rach! And the flavors sound so delicious and totally intriguing! I absolutely MUST add this to my Cinco de Mayo line up. I plan on drinking pitchers of margaritas and stuffing my face with guac on repeat. You better bet I’m excited to try this ‘rita! Pinned! Cheers, sweets! XOXO
Wow! I love your contribution! And that color! I can’t take my eyes off of it!!

These look so amazing!! I love blood oranges and that beer!! ????
Very pretty. I kept reading until I figured out that gose isn’t a typo! Maybe I can find something similar…
karrie @ Tasty Ever After
The first time I had a gose, I was like “This shiza is too light!”, and figured I’d just drink one if I was in a pool or on a boat. Kind of like a session beer. BUT!!!! Adding tequila to it is my cuppa tea and is the only way I’m going to drink it from now on! Love the blood orange and I’m totally trying this recipe ASAP 🙂 Cheers girl!

Too bad I missed Cinco de Mayo. But I guess it’s never too late to make a margarita 😉
Kathy @ Beyond the Chicken Coop
I’m all about margaritas and these blood orange ones look fabulous! Hope you had a fun filled Cinco de Mayo!

What a fun ‘rita! I didn’t see this one in time for Cinco de Mayo, but that isn’t going to stop me from giving it a shot! I’ll have to find a suitable replacement for that gose up here, but I’m sure there’s something. I’m totally intrigued by the idea of a gose in a ‘rita. Mmm… 🙂

Megan @ MegUnprocessed
Look at that color, so refreshing!
I just love the color and presentation of this blood orange gose margarita. The weather’s turning better now; I won’t mind sipping on margarita to pass the time on a warm summers afternoon.
