bitters: blood oranges are pretty.

blood oranges are pretty.

The last stage of the bitters is in process; the orange peels are soaking in light rum for the next 12 days, and then we’ll be ready to start the final mixing of the product. everything smells so very good.

Earlier tonight I squeezed 3 pounds of blood oranges, taking that picture there in the middle, because they were just so very pretty and vibrant.

After they got squeezed, I carefully peeled the rind off the squeezed fruit and its soaking, now, in light rum. Then I took the juice and reduced it to about 6 oz. of very thick, quite tasty blood orange syrup, which will get added into the bitters again later on to bring the blood orangeyness of the bitters.
