Blood and Sand Cocktail

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"This long forgotten Prohibition-era cocktail is named for the 1922 movie starring Rudolph Valentino. It is the movie which, on his death bed, he stated he'd like to be his legacy. Try this drink straight up, and toast one of the most revered actors of silent film."

The hubs was thrown off by the actual orange juice in the cocktail. He would have preferred just bitters or a twist.

Good with cherry brandy, or can substitute regular brandy + a splash of maraschino juice.
