Blood Orange Mimosas

IMG_5261_edited-1Well folks, we all made it through another week. Now, that’s something to celebrate so pat yourself on the back for a job well done and get to squeezing some fresh blood orange juice. If you want to get fancy, because it’s the weekend and we have brunches and stuff to host and peeps to impress, make some blood orange sugar to rim your glasses.
