Comment:

A Blood & Sand made with tequila. A classic Scotch whisky based Blood & Sand is made with equal parts of all four ingredients, but the cherry brandy, vermouth and orange seem to overwhelm tequila when used in place of Scotch, hence the much higher proportion of spirit in this riff.

Origin:

Created in February 2017 by yours truly (Simon Difford) at the Cabinet Room, London, England.

Based on the classic Blood & Sand cocktail. History and variants can be found on our Blood & Sand page.
