Today's drink is great for all you citrus lovers!

I recently found some blood oranges at my local Aldi but they're now labeled as raspberry oranges. The name might be more consumer friendly, but they're the same thing.

I've been a huge fan of these oranges since they first were available years ago, but this was my first time using them to make a cocktail.

This cocktail is fantastic! It's not too sweet, has some texture from the orange pulp, which I love and only takes a few minutes to prepare. 

Try serving it at your next party or gathering. You can juice a bunch of oranges at once and put it into a pitcher to pour from for each drink.
