Author Notes: While the original cocktail has the recipe listed for equal parts, I second Ted Haigh’s opinion that by amping up the scotch and the orange juice by 1/4 ounce, you get a much more dynamic cocktail that fascinates from the first sip to the last.Erik Lombardo

Serves 1

  • 1 ounce scotch
  • 1 ounce fresh orange juice
  • 3/4 ounce sweet vermouth
  • 3/4 ounce Cherry Heering
  1. Pour ingredients into a cocktail shaker, shake well with ice, and strain into a coupe or a cocktail glass.

Leave out the OJ. Equal parts scotch, vermouth, cherry.

Blood & Sand w/tequila is an amazing drink served up at The Tiki Ti on Sunset Blvd. in Los Angeles (and my personal favorite).

I love those guys at Tiki-Ti as well! One of my favorite spots in LA.

Blood and Sand is the namesake cocktail at a private-dining restaurant in St. Louis. Restaurant appropriately named Blood and Sand and this cocktail is my hands-down favorite.

Sounds like a Theme Drink for an English Patient party.)

Nice! I was thinking Hemingway!

I have a jar of brandied cherries that is mostly just brandy at this point. This is the perfect way to use that up! As a person who likes the scotch to come through a bit more, I upped the ratio scotch to brandy/vermouth even further. If there is such a thing, the current recipe is a little *too* drinkable. ;)

I asked a bartender to make me a scotch or bourbon drink a few months ago, that was a little sweet and a little smokey - he gave me a Blood & Sand, and it was delicious. Thanks for the recipe!
