Blood and Sand Cocktail – Original 1934 Savoy Recipe

Blood and Sand

What a gross sounding name for such a beautiful drink. First printed in the Savoy Cocktail book this is actually named after the 1922 silent film Blood and Sand. The movie is about a young matador who gets caught up in the glitz and glamour of bull fighting, has an affair, and dies while trying to redeem himself. Experiment with blood oranges and regular ones and see which you like best.
