Blood Orange Food and Drink -- Worth Every Drop
LAS VEGAS (MainStreet) -- With blood orange season entering its final weeks, TravelsinTaste has rounded up some of the tastiest ways to enjoy this antioxidant-laden fruit.
In California the "Too Hot Tamales" of TV fame -- chefs Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken -- have mastered the blood orange cocktail with multiple concoctions: The wildly popular Pisco Sour at Border Grill in Downtown L.A. is a combination of pisco, lime, egg white powder and blood orange bitters -- so popular and delicious it is staying on the menu indefinitely. Also being served is the Pisco Sangre, a seasonal specialty drink with pisco and blood orange, and the Blood Orange Jalapeno Margarita.

"At Border Grill, our favorite way to spice up the winter doldrums is with a ruby red, spicy, tart margarita made with the abundant blood oranges of the season and a little muddled jalapeno," says Milliken, co-chef and owner of Border Grill Restaurants and Truck, as well as a star of Bravo's Top Chef Masters.
