I had an orange to juice after stealing all the peel for garnishes, so I tried this... I really like this drink. It reminds me of a Hemingway Daiquiri, but richer and more interesting yet still light and refreshing Thanks.

Thanks so much, Christina! I consider the Hemingway Daiquiri (Papa Doble) one of the very best drinks ever devised, so the comparison means a great deal to me.

Enjoyed this one very much. Used No. 209 Gin, subbed Inferno Bitter for Campari, and used blood orange juice because it's what was on hand. The choice of the latter made for a very pretty cocktail. 

An excellent cocktail !! Smooth, gentle, wonderful blending of flavors. I'm glad I found it and gave it a try.
