  • 1 Tbsp Honey
  • 1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract

  • Squeeze the blood orange juice into a mason jar with a lid or cocktail shaker. Add the honey and vanilla extract to the unchilled juice. Shake. Add ice to cool it down.

Squeeze the blood orange juice on a non-porous surface or one that you don’t mind ruining. It will stain.
