How to make the Blood and Sand – love it or hate it?
This is because it calls for orange juice, which is difficult to mix with due to its lack of acidity (lemon and lime are more affective against rich ingredients like liqueurs and sweet vermouth). So today I’m addressing this by making the Blood and Sand two ways! The first is how I’ve made it for years – leaving in the ice chips from shaking to offer a bit more texture. For the second drink I’m testing acid adjusted orange juice to see if that better balances the flavors. I’ve never tried this adjustment to the Blood and Sand, so I’m excited! Will it work? Is this a mistake? Am I doomed to struggle with this drink for the rest of time? Are you still reading this? Hope so. Cheers, everyone!
