Blood oranges are amazing. If you haven’t tried a blood orange I encourage you to the next time you see one. Their name comes from the color of their flesh, looking close to the color of blood. They have unique pigments that aren’t found in other citrus fruits and their aroma is much more intense than a regular orange. They’re slightly sweeter and more flavorful as well.

The beautiful pastel pink/orange icing in this recipe comes directly from the blood orange juice – no zero artificial colors here, folks! Nature is amazing.
