FOOD FRIDAYS: Sparkling Blood Orange Mocktail
Get into the festive spirit with this Sparkling Blood Orange Mocktail!
Take advantage of what’s in-season by using beautiful blood oranges, which not only pack a sweet citrus punch but also have immune-boosting properties! Vitamin C is something we all need in these winter months, so why not incorporate it where you can! Honey adds a slight sweetness, while vanilla adds a complexity that is often missed in mocktails!
Use sparkling water to top it off, or if you’re looking for even more flavour try kombucha!
Super easy and great to make ahead – try out this mocktail for your next holiday party.
8 oz. blood orange juice, freshly squeezed
1 tablespoon honey
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
4 oz. lime sparkling water
blood orange slices for garnish
Squeeze the blood orange juice into a mason jar with a lid or cocktail shaker. Add the honey and vanilla extract to the unchilled juice. Shake. Add ice to cool it down.
Pour evenly into two ice-filled glasses. Top with lime sparkling water and a slice of blood orange on top. Cheers! Enjoy right away.
