I'm usually a maximum of five ingredients in a cocktail kind-a-guy but this Blood & Sand riff with seven ingredients is balanced and tasty. If I were in
One of the best classic Scotch cocktails, the Blood & Sand is said to be the Scotch whisky-based cocktail that whisky haters will like. Some may find this
The equal parts Blood and Sand (scotch, cherry brandy, sweet vermouth, and orange juice) formula from the 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book is the accepted
Reminiscent of a classic champagne cocktail with cognac, champagne and zesty orange flavours dominating. It’s surprising how little cherry brandy notes

Spiritous and richly fruity with orange and cherry combining harmoniously with cognac.
