Oh, citrus season. Right in the midst of winter, a sunny sort of drink that can mentally transport you to a happier, warmer place is exactly what we need, right? Blood oranges are my favorite of all citrus fruits. Each year when their fleeting season returns, we buy huge bags of them during every single trip to the store. Even with a huge supply, I always manage to make good use of them.
Blood orange mojitos were the first thing that came to mind when deciding what to do with my first haul this year. (Promptly followed by about six more ideas, so get ready for blood orange everything around here.) Simple cocktails are key, and these are very simple with just a handful of ingredients. Make a large batch to share with friends and/or family and everyone will love you for helping to keep the winter blues at bay.
