{friday cocktail: blood orange sparkler}

This past weekend, I discovered that blood orange season had begun at our local Whole Foods and I immediately picked up a few to test out some different cocktail recipes.   The rich color and slight tartness that blood oranges have make them a great cocktail ingredient to experiment with.  Obviously the first cocktail I wanted to try with them was a champagne cocktail.  This one ended up tasting a little bit like a mimosa and I even tried it with a bit of Chambord poured over top (about 1/2 ounce) which made for a wonderfully sweet addition.  Here's the recipe:



  1. It sounds delish! Love the idea of splashing with Chambord.

  2. love it!
