At a dinner I attended recently, children were served Gavioli's Blood Orange Sparkling Juice instead of sparkling wine. Curious, I poured myself some, filling the flute with tiny bubbles and a beautiful deep orange hue. I was hooked on my first sip; it's a far cry from the sugary Martinelli's that I grew up with.
The drink, made from pressed grapes and blood oranges, was fruity and well-rounded, with small, gentle bubbles. It's not the least bit cloying. No added sugars or concentrates? Now that's something I can get behind. I passed on another glass of prosecco for a second round of the sparkling juice. Gavioli also makes red grape and green apple versions, but the blood orange is the best by far.
