A couple weeks ago I received some I.O. Organic Sicilian Blood Orange Juice in the mail to sample, so my Honey and I decided we'd use the juice to make some cocktails. We sampled the blood orange juice on it's own first and thought it would combine nicely with some Pom Wonderful juice that we already had in the fridge. Add a little Sprite and some Vodka... and we had a very happy "Happy Hour" at our house!
This drink was tart and bold, and the Sprite added just the right hint of sweetness to the mix. Vodka was all we had in the house at the time, but I think you could have used either rum or gin and it would have been equally delicious. All in all it ended up to be a very nice, refreshing cocktail to enjoy on a quiet weekend at home. I can totally see this being a great drink in the summer... it's cool and a bit on the sour side, definitely a thirst quencher.
