  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup Moro blood orange juice freshly squeezed
  • 1/2 teaspoon Moro blood orange peel grated


  • Add the sugar and water to a small but heavy saucepan over a medium-low setting. Heat, stirring constantly, until the sugar dissolves.

  • Cover, and allow it to cool at room temperature before using.
