Garden Cocktails: Blood Orange – The Midwick Sally
Blood Oranges are nearing the end of their season, but don’t forsake our favorite citrus yet, use them with gusto! They are called Blood Oranges for their deep red flesh and rosy blush on the skin, and are the perfect blend of juicy, sweet and tart. Traditionally grown in Italy, Blood Oranges are popular with chefs for use in creating amazing sauces, sorbets and desserts and cocktails.
These sunny citrus gems should be firm and heavy for their size and might have red/orange skin or just look like a plain old orange. They should have a sweet, clean scent and may temporarily stain your fingers when you squeeze enough juice to make…
