Orange zest twist (discarded) & Luxardo Maraschino cherry
How to make:
SHAKE all ingredients with ice and fine strain into chilled glass.
|1 fl oz||Dewar's 12 Year Old Scotch whisky|
|3/4 fl oz||Cherry Heering cherry brandy liqueur|
|3/4 fl oz||Martini Rosso sweet vermouth|
|1/6 fl oz||Islay single malt (peated) Scotch whisky (optional)|
|1 fl oz||Orange juice (freshly squeezed)|
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 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.
