How to Make the Blood and Sand Cocktail In 1922 Rudolph Valentino starred in the movie "Blood and Sand", a movie that shortly before his death in 1926 he declared as the part he liked the best. He had just undergone a touchy surgery for appendicitis and gastric ulcers and told the gathering press "The part I like best was my role in 'Blood and Sand'. If I had died, I would have liked to be remembered as an actor by that role -- I think it my greatest." He died a few days later from peritonitis. It is unknown who actually created the recipe for Blood and Sand, but its first appearance seems to be in "The Savoy Cocktail Book" by Harry Cradock in 1930. There it lists the recipe as equal parts of all three ingredients, but I feel that the recipe works better by boosting the scotch.
