Blood-Orange Margarita

1 1/2 oz. gold tequila
1/2 oz. Grand Marnier or mandarin liqueur
1/2 oz. lime juice
1 oz. blood-orange juice
1/2 oz. sugar syrup
extra lime juice
superfine sugar
ice cubes

First, frost a cocktail glass with sugar: Dip the rim in a saucer of the extra lime juice, then a saucer of sugar, shake off any excess, and chill.
Next, add a scoop of ice to a cocktail shaker, then tequila, Grand Marnier or liqueur, lime and blood-orange juices, and sugar syrup. Shake vigorously and strain into the sugar-frosted glass.
