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.
Created by yours truly (Simon Difford) at the Cabinet Room, London, England in August 2014.
Based on the classic Blood & Sand cocktail, of which more information can be found on our Blood & Sand cocktail page.
