A new spin on the classic limoncello is arancello, use Sicilian blood oranges instead of lemons from Positano for a lovely liquor with a bold bright flavor. A no-fail recipe (orange rinds, grain alcohol, sugar & water) means it's a perfect introduction to making homemade liqueurs! I can't cook to save my life, but I have become a pro at infusing liquors from limoncello to nocino (walnut & vanilla), visciolino (wild cherry), prugnolino (wild plum/sloe) & now arancello. Bottle, freeze & serve for a refreshing digestivo (after dinner drink) any time of year.

Blood Orange and Cardamom Mojitos with Basil Recipe
I'm not a fan of overly sweet drinks, desserts, or TV hostesses. In fact, I usually drink my vodka straight, because at the end of the day I'm just a simple girl who likes to get kicked out of bars in three-inch heels. But since this is a PJ party and not a Motörhead concert, I figured, why not dress it up a little with a not-too-sweet blood orange mojito?

Margarita
This recipe is derived from my dad’s amazing margaritas. During the summer, he’s the margarita-maker. I don’t know what he does, but I can never seem to recreate the slightly-tart, slightly-sweet, and oh-so-easy-to-drink cocktail he creates. Here, I sub half the lime juice for blood orange juice. Just remember: The key to the recipe is equal parts juice to triple sec to tequila. I’ve dabbled with using both triple sec and Grand Marnier in the drink. I find a smoother taste comes from using good-quality triple sec (not the $5 stuff in the grocery store). And NEVER use anything but fresh lime juice — preferably from room temperature limes. This recipe calls for serving the margarita up, but you can also serve it over rocks. A salt rim is up to you... But forgetting the Chunky Guacamole with chips is a crime.
