Blood and Sand: A Devilish Cocktail Recipe for Halloween

Blood and Sand - Scotch Cocktail Recipe

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!
