Not much is known about the Blood and Sand except that it’s probably named after a 1922 bullfighting movie of the same name. Notoriously too sweet, this version includes a dash of lemon to raise the acidity to balance the heavy sweet liqueur.
1 oz Blended Scotch
3/4 oz Cherry Heering
3/4 oz Sweet Vermouth
1 oz Orange or Blood Orange Juice
1/4 oz Lemon Juice
2 drops Salt Solution (4:1)
