Here it is:

Blood and Glory Blood Orange Cocktail 3

 

The first Blood Orange Cocktail dreamed up by my incredibly talented (and incredibly sexy) husband.

Chris dodd

It’s really beautiful cocktail with a citrusy sweetness that’s perfectly balanced. It’s prefect for a Ladies Night, a Dinner Party Night, or just a Netflix Night.

I’m already starting to grieve the end of the Blood Orange season, which usually ends in March. If you can’t get your hands on these, or when the season ends, muddle some raspberries and naval orange juice in a cocktail shaker to get close to these great flavors and the amazing color.

      I’m a little embarrassed to say I don’t know what a Cotswold is (other than the town in England) But I’ll believe you ;)
