A delicious way to use up seasonal blood oranges in the winter. This vanilla blood orange syrup is perfect for holiday cocktails and non-alcoholic drinks.
- 1 ½ cups of strained fresh blood orange juice
- ½ cup sugar or ⅓ cup of agave
- ½ vanilla bean pod or ½ tbsp vanilla bean paste/ extract
Place all the ingredients in a saucepan. Heat over medium heat and stir to dissolve the sugar (if using sugar).
Bring the syrup to a simmer, and then let it simmer for about 10-20 minutes, until it reduces to 1 cup of syrup.
Remove the syrup from the heat and let it cool down to room temperature. Pour the syrup into a bottle and store in the fridge until needed. Use within 1 week (if refrigerated).
