Blood and Sand

Sometimes a girl needs scotch.  This cocktail, introduced in 1922, was named after Rudolph Valentino’s classic silent-movie romance film. It’s both classic and delicious.  Give it a try.

1 oz Scotch

1 oz Fresh juice from a blood orange

.75 oz Sweet vermouth

.75 oz Cherry Heering

Combine all ingredients in a shaker.  Add ice and shake well.  Strain into a martini glass and enjoy after a long day :)
