Blood Orange Martini

Blood Orange Martini

Blood Oranges are showing up in the produce section of my grocery store and I couldn’t resist picking up a few.  I peeled three of these maroon colored fruits to juice for cocktails and I saved the peels to make sugared orange candies.  Recipe for candies next week.

A blood orange is a variety of orange with crimson flesh.  The red pigment is an antioxidant, so these oranges contain more antioxidants than other oranges.  Their flavor is a little raspberry-like and is perfect for cocktails.  Paired with Campari this cocktail is a little bitter so should be perfect for those that don’t like a sweet martini.

Wishing you…
Peace, Good times,
Good health
and Happiness…
on Easter or Passover
