Sanpellegrino Aranciata Rossa Organic bottle with a Blood & Sand Cocktail



  • 2.5 oz Sanpellegrino Aranciata Rossa Organic
  • 1.3 oz Scotch Whisky
  • 0.5 oz Italian Red Vermouth
  • 0.5 oz Cherry Liquor
  • 1 orange wedge


Named after the 1922 movie starring Rudolph Valentino, Sanpellegrino Blood & Sand is a triumph of Italian style and international flavors.

The cocktail gets its distinctive color and citrus notes from the juicy oranges and blood oranges of Sanpellegrino Aranciata Rossa Organic. Combine that with the intense bouquet of Scotch Whisky, the spicy aromas of Vermouth, and the stewed plum and cherry jam flavor of Cherry Liquor, and it all adds up to a refined and fabulous blend.

Sanpellegrino Blood & Sand is best prepared in a mixing glass before being strained into a highball. For an added touch of freshness, we recommend garnishing with a slice of orange, neatly placed next to the rim of the glass.

For a stylish and spectacular mixology experience worthy of Valentino himself, this is the cocktail to choose.
