Refreshing Blood Orange Drink


If you happen to follow me on my Instagram then you already know my passion borderline obsession with blood oranges. Everything about this citrus fruit is amazing! The benefits, the taste, the beautiful color on the inside of the fruit, it’s absolutely astounding to me. Ok, I may be a little obsessed lol!

citrus squeezer. You will work a little harder and you won’t get that bright red color, but the taste will still be equally delicious. I’m a big aesthetic person, I love making things pretty! with flavor always being first.
