Citrus Kiss

About 2 tbsp. superfine sugar
1 cup ice
1/3 cup blood orange sparkling cider or sparkling cider with few orange food color mixed
1 tablespoon mandarin orange or tangerine juice
2 tablespoons Lemon-Lime Juice 
2 tablespoons Simple Syrup or 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup

Simple Syrup: Equal parts sugar and water, heated until the sugar dissolves. (Your yield will be the same as the amount of water you use.)
Lemon-Lime Juice: Equal parts freshly squeezed lemon and lime juice, for adding acidity in a flash.
1. Put sugar on a plate. Run a lemon or lime wedge around the rim of a martini glass to wet it, then twist rim in sugar.
2. Put remaining ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake until cold, about 1 minute. Strain drink into prepared glass.

Tip of the day: Fruits must be washed shortly before eating it; rinsing it long before eating it, increases the decomposition process.
