Blood oranges: Blood oranges are usually found in the winter and spring, though you may get lucky and find some in the summer. Look for heavy, firm fruit. You will need about 1 and 1/2 oranges for the drink.
Standard orange juice: Using standard orange colored orange juice in the drink has the unfortunate effect of making it a drab, beige color.
