The blood orange has a crimson, almost blood-colored flesh (aptly defined as “sanguine”) and about the size of an average orange. Its unique dark maroon color is due to the presence of antioxidant anthocyanins—found in many flowers but rarely in citrus—and develops in the fruit when temperatures dip at night. Fragrant and flavorful, a freshly squeezed blood orange combined with vodka, Grand Marnier and spiced honey crème creates a cocktail that sparks both tart, spicy and sweet…a most sassy libation indeed. Cheers!
