It is a classic cocktail, similar to an old fashioned. It's also known as the Hemingway Special (he loved it), and the Italian Stallion—it's a riff on a Negroni, but with blood orange juice instead of Campari, which makes it a bit sweeter and more fragrant. A garnish of orange peel can be used for presentation.
