It might be starting to sound/look like I’m obsessed with citrus fruit but blood oranges have to be the prettiest fruit when they’re at the height of their season. Making a cordial out of blood oranges is so simple and looks really cool and vibrant. It’s really nice and refreshing with still or sparkling water but even more refreshing with Prosecco on a Friday after a long week 😉 Blood orange Bellini’s are the best!
What you need:
Juice of 10 blood orange and the rind of 5
Juice of one lemon
2 cups of water
1 cups of sugar
(Bottle of Prosecco for the bellinis)
What to do:
Bring the water and sugar to the boil in a pot with the rind of the oranges. Allow all the sugar to dissolve in the water and then remove from the heat and allow cool completely. Meanwhile juice the oranges and lemon and strain the juice to remove and seeds or pulp. Once the syurp has cooled completely strain and add the juice. Taste and add more juice if needed.
Store in a glass bottle in the fridge. Serve over ice, water or Prosecco with some mint leaves for an extra zing.
Have a good weekend, Kate xxx
