Looking for the perfect cocktail idea for Halloween? Here’s a classic recipe from the Prohibition era with a suitably sinister name: Blood & Sand. It’s one of the few cocktails out there that uses scotch as as the base spirit, while blood orange juice makes this drink a devilishly red color. For some depth and balance, you’ll also need cherry brandy and some sweet vermouth. Cheers!
Blood & Sand
1 oz blended scotch
1 oz blood orange juice or Stirring’s Blood Orange Martini
3/4 oz sweet vermouth
3/4 oz Cherry Heering brandy
Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Pour ingredients over ice. Shake and strain, serve on the rocks. Garnish with an orange peel.
