Although winter isn’t as bounteous as summer is garden-wise, one of the sweetest things about the season is blood oranges. Harvested in winter, these deeply sweet fruits bring a breath of freshness into the season that I love.
A great way to incorporate the citrus into your winter entertaining is by preparing a large batch of spiced blood orange sangria. Sangria is not only visually appealing and brightly colored, but a great drink option for larger parties as it is easy to prepare in high quantities. This version beautifully blends the warmth of whole cloves + cinnamon with the tang of limes + lemons and tartiness of pomegranate + cranberry. It’s a surprising, fresh blend to add that something extra to your soirée.
