Review:

I'm usually a maximum of five ingredients in a cocktail kind-a-guy but this Blood & Sand riff with seven ingredients is balanced and tasty. If I were in Asia, where the number eight is lucky, then I'd have also used equal parts orange juice and blood orange juice to keep the number of ingredients lucky.

History:

A riff on the classic Blood & Sand cocktail created in August 2014 by yours truly at the Cabinet Room in London, England.
