Blood Orange Bourbon Sweet Tea


I absolutely adore blood oranges, and love finding new ways to use them. Usually, my blood orange consumption involves slicing them up and diving in, leaving my face and our counters looking like a scene out of Dexter... but, guess what? You can actually use them for something other than juice delivery to the face. Such as mixing them with other juices, like liquor. Or, sweet tea. This cocktail provided a perfect way to use this gem of a winter seasonal fruit in a drink that's also reminiscent of summer.
