Seasonal Blood Orange Menu

All five Rio Grande Mexican Restaurants will soon add a few special items featuring blood oranges while they are in season, from Feb. 4 – March 2, 2020. This year marks the sixth annual blood orange menu to include a Lobster Taco, Winter Citrus Salad, Citrus Churros and of course, its famous Blood Orange Margarita – just in time for National Margarita Day on February 22. To celebrate the Margarita Day holiday, the Rio will be offering $8 Blood Orange Margaritas all day.

Rio Blood Orange Margarita“The Blood Orange Margaritas have grown a bit of a cult following over the past five years,” said Rio owner and founder Pat McGaughran. “So, we decided to add blood orange items to the food menu. The refreshing flavor and bright color of the California moro blood oranges offer a welcomed, sweet reprise in the middle of winter.”

Limited-time menu items include:

  • Blood Orange Margarita with Maestro Dobel Diamante tequila ($10)
  • Lobster Taco with blood orange compound ($6)
  • Winter Citrus Salad dressed in a blood orange chile vinaigrette ($6 for a small and $12 for a large)
  • Citrus Churros with a chocolate dipping sauce and a dulce de leche dipping sauce ($6)
