Squeeze fresh blood oranges. We used an old fashion hand juicer to get the job done. Reserve a slice or two of blood orange for a garnish. Add your blood orange juice, freshly grated ginger though a fine mesh strainer, then add Aperol, vodka and ice into a shaker. Shake well until incorporated and strain into a martini glass and top with a splash of seltzer water as desired and give it a little stir. Garnish with a slice of ginger and blood orange and enjoy.

You may use between 2-3 blood oranges depending on the size of your oranges. Feel free to add a second ounce of vodka, if it has been a stressful week (smiling) Drink while snow flaky cold. The mocktail version is great any time of the day.
