How you could step away from this without thinking that it is truly a bloody good drink, I don't know. First off, it has a great anejo tequila from the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico along with Disaronno, the great Italian amaretto. To that mix we add blood orange, the spice of ginger, a little sweet and sour, and top it off with a refreshing soda. It, quite simply, is the makings for 'A Bloody Good Time' and is a highball with just the right amount of complexity to keep your interest to the end no matter the occasion or season.
