Comment:

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.
