Cooler temperatures mean its blood orange season. Blood oranges are grown typically in Mediterranean climates and also in Florida and California in the US then harvested in winter. You should be able to locate them near you between December and April. We definitely wanted to take advantage of this juicy tart fruit in today's cocktail. We hope you enjoy! As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online! Instagram ---> @ staynfocusimages
