Fritters are a fitting ending to an all-fried-food menu, or to any meal for that matter. Making the most of winter’s citrus selection, this recipe combines orange juice, blood oranges, and honey, giving these yeasty, light bites a sweet, acidic nip.
Game plan: If you want supercrisp fritters, keep the honey and blood orange pieces in separate bowls for your guests to dip and garnish as they please. This recipe is pareve.

Beverage pairing: Braida Brachetto d’Acqui, Italy. This wine, which is pink, sweet, and redolent of strawberries and raspberries, is irresistible on its own. Paired with the dessert, it has the sweetness to enhance the fritters, but a different-enough flavor profile to make an intriguing combination.
