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:

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.
