Honestly, I think the most obvious way to order two bloodwines is to say:

*'Iw HIq. cha' HIvje'.*/Bloodwine. Two glasses.

Everyone's always making intricate constructions in order to force one 
English sentence into one complete Klingon sentence, but I honestly 
think Klingon is more flexible than that. Complete sentences are not 
necessary. Single sentences are not necessary. It feels much more 
natural in Klingon to just shove pieces together in ways that makes the 
context clear. I honestly think, based not so much on canon but on how 
the language just naturally seems to work, that we over-translate all 
the time.
