Blood Orange Cosmo
Blood Orange Cosmo

Swapping lime juice out for blood orange deepens the red hue of this classic cocktail, and adds a sweet citrusy flavor that balances the tart cranberry juice. Blood oranges have a rich red color, and are less acidic than navel oranges. Typically, one blood orange should be enough for this drink, but pick up an extra for garnishing the glass. They can be found with the other citrus in your grocery store.
