Blood Orange Pepper Pot

I think the blood orange is about one of the prettiest citrus fruits in existence.  When Oakley from Freida's Specialty Produce asked me what I would like and blood oranges were on the list, well, I had to choose them.  She not only sent me some blood oranges, but the sugar cane swivel sticks, Meyer lemons and crepes!  I have another post with the Meyer lemon for you coming up soon and hopefully yet another one with the crepes!  However, today is dedicated to the blood orange.  Also, did you know they featured me as Food Blogger of the Month for December?  Follow the link to their newsletter to check it out (and subscribe to it while your there!)

I decided I wanted a fruity, slightly sweet drink with a little hit of heat.  I keep thinking about the drink I had at Bonefish Grill with the jalapeno.  Alas, I did not have a jalapeno (which is rare for me) and I was not going to drive to a store to get one.  So, I made due and used a little cayenne.  Worked great :)  However, I still want to make this with jalapeno!  This is enough for two drinks.  One for you and one for me, or maybe two for me and you go make your own.  ;)  Enjoy!

  2. What a great use for blood oranges! :) I hate oranges but I love drinks made using orange juice, especially blood oranges! I've pinned this to my drinks board to try when blood oranges are in season :)
