After finding a case of blood oranges in my car (oh my! How did that happen!?!), I set out to make enough blood orangecello to drink and share and gift until the next time this lovely fruit is in season.
Vodka is still being filtered and added, but this is all of those zests after 48 hours.
We have 8 pint containers full of blood orange juice in our freezer. It feels too decadent to just drink straight up although I did just that while I was juicing the oranges.
What would you do with 1 gallon of blood orange juice?
The only sure thing we have planned would be the blood orange margaritas.
*Update*: Anne suggested making a blood orange curd and this immediately jumped to the top of my list.
I've been pricing out all of this cello. By filtering cheap vodka, we have kept the cost of the cello to just a little over $5 a quart.
Since I drink mine with 1 part cello to 1 part club soda, that cost breaks down into a whopping 30 cents for 1 cup (total of 16 cups).
Why yes, I will have that second glass!
In the next week, I need to clean out our freezer to fit *gulp* 25 or so quart jars, find 25 or so quart jars and buy all of that Snowville Creamery milk.
Can I do it? Yes, I can.
