Since I live in Citrus Country I have been enjoying a Blood Orange after my lunch. It is a nice dessert treat and makes me feel happy! Fact: Blood Oranges are slightly less acidic than regular oranges. They contain 120 percent of the recommended daily amount of vitamin C, 12 percent of the amount of fiber, and also potassium, calcium, and vitamin A.
All my orange eating has got me excited to try this cocktail:
BLOOD ORANGE MARGARITAS
- 3 oz tequila
- 2 oz orange liqueur
- 2 oz fresh-squeezed lime juice
- 4 oz fresh-squeezed blood orange juice (3-4 oranges)
- 1 oz simple syrup
