I love the ridiculously bold color you discover when you slice into a blood orange. I decided to translate that vibrance to liquid form by making my own blood orange soda. I liked the ratio I ended up with, but you can certainly make it more orangey or sweeter depending on your taste. Serve over ice with a sprig of mint. It's the winter fruit that tastes like summertime in a glass.
Blood Orange Soda
