The Blood and Sand mixed at the OXO Tower is a cocktail well worth checking out.
It’s so incredibly more-ish, delightfully presented, packed with flavour, yet never over-dependent on the taste of the alcohol. You literally could sit and drink these all afternoon. Especially relaxing high above the Thames on the balcony of the OXO Tower enjoying the Indian summer.

Built around Macallan Gold Double Cask 12 year old scotch, July’s malt of the month here at Liquid Sunshine, this is a summer evening cocktail that works wonderfully on many levels.
It oozes class. It looks spectacular. It entices, it teases, then finally, it tastes delicious.

Macallan Double Cask 12, shaken with Antica formula, Cherry Heering and pressed orange juice, creates a zesty, cherry citrus blend with a chasing note of beautifully complementary Macallan throughout.
It ends in a rich cherry finish as the Macallan whispers sweet nothings to you as you sip the last precious drops till its gone, leaving you just wanting more.

If you’re in the mood for a sweet, fruity cocktail that refreshes the soul and leaves you wanting more, this is the one for you.

I loved it.
