Drinking in Season: Blood Orange Flip
Blood oranges, with their lightly blushed rinds and deep crimson insides, are the superstar of citrus season in my household. As long as they're in season, I try to have a few sitting around. Their sweet, juicy flesh makes for a great snack—and an even better cocktail ingredient.
Lately one of my favorite ways to use blood orange juice is with whiskey. Both ingredients have a certain amount of sweetness, but the citrusy sourness of the blood orange helps liven up the richness of whiskey. Looking to add a little depth to the cocktail, I added a hint of honey syrup. Eggwhite adds a frothy texture to the bright pink cocktail. The result is a cocktail that is so easy to drink, it'll be gone before you know it.
