Tequila-based, with complex mezcal smokiness, rich maraschino cherry and floral lavender bitters. It's a cocktail that likes dilution so perhaps consider serving on the rocks.
Created in April 2015 by yours truly. The name was inspired by the lyrics of Neil Young's 1969 song, Cow Girl In The Sand, which, depending on who you believe, is about "unrequited love for a beautiful free-spirited woman," or about a promiscuous woman, or about a Spanish beach. I thought the lyrics mentioned "Sandy the showgirl" and was surprised to find they don't when I came to expand this explanation behind the name.
