Sweetened Dried Blood Orange Slices are a nice addition to cocktails, mocktails, muesli and cereals. Or so I hear – I’ve only ever had them in cocktails. If you know me, this news will be no surprise.
Speaking as a cocktail connoisseur Sweetened Dried Blood Orange Slices are a real treat when added to cocktails. They go best with cocktails that have very distinct flavors, such as a Cosmopolitan, Negroni, or any spiced cocktail. I used Sweetened Dried Blood Orange Slices in my Mezcal Negroni recipe, it’s delicious. It’s a sophisticated cocktail, great for a dinner party, or dinner with bae.
All you need is a couple of blood oranges, brown sugar and cinnamon and your trusty stove to make your very own Sweetened Dried Blood Orange Slices. Just slice the oranges as thin as you can, mix together the sugar with the cinnamon and sprinkle over the slices. Place in the oven on low heat and remove once dried. Simple!
When the weather is grim outside, or you just fancy a spiced or smoky cocktail, these babies are the perfect garnish. Once a slice is immersed in a drink the flavors become enhanced and it will taste much better for adding your own handmade Sweetened Dried Blood Orange Slice. Alternatively, create a fabulous mocktail for dinner al fresco and pop one in each glass.
You can apply this recipe to any citrus, so have fun and experiment.
