First appearing in The Savoy Cocktail Book in 1930 by Harry Craddock, the Blood and Sand cocktail has a bit of a mysterious past. It is supposedly named after the famous 1922 bullfighter silent film of the same name from the early Hollywood era. Due to the unique ingredients, all of equal parts, this cocktail provides a diverse yet nuanced flavor. Similar to the dance of a bullfighter in the ring, this cocktail will surprise and delight with its sweet, yet bitter, flavors.
