"I feel Blood Oranges miss their season. The sweet Citrus flavor needs to be ready to go for a perfect summer refresher. The sweetness of the blood oranges mixed with the sour of the lemon makes me dream of summer. Maybe I'm wrong and they come at the perfect time to get us out of our winter and early spring slump!"
