Continuing our Halloween theme, we have incorporated a  drink recipe with Blood Oranges.  The deep red hue of the blood orange is far darker than your regular orange, thus giving its flesh and juice a deep red color, similar to blood.  Of course keeping with our theme what better way to get tipsy while being festive?
