The equal parts (scotch, cherry brandy, sweet vermouth and orange juice) formula from the 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book is the accepted classic Blood & Sand recipe but results in a cocktail that’s a tad sweet for hardened whisky drinkers. This formula with slightly increased Scotch and orange juice is dryer and fresher. Those with a taste for Scotch and a slightly drier drink may also appreciate the additional spoon of Islay malt.
