Blood & Sand

This scotch sour abandons the traditional equal parts ratio and adds some extra acid for a light zing.

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)

Orange Peel

  1. Combine all ingredients except peel in a shaker tin with ice.
  2. Shake WELL for about 30 seconds. This drink relies on a good frothy texture which an only be achieved by athletic shaking.
  3. Double strain into a coupe glass. Express orange oils over the top of the drink and enjoy!
