The Story Behind The Winter Citrus
There is something about the flavor and color of winter citrus that makes everything happy and bright — even when it is cold, gray, and possibly snowing outside.
There are so many varieties in season, too, like blood oranges, mandarins, and tangelos. I found some super-delicious tangelos and lemons at my local market and paired their juices with honey syrup and sparkling wine in this bubbly winter cocktail. It’s built in the glass, so it’s super easy to prepare for a crowd.
