Blood and Sand

The name of this cocktail comes from the title of a Rudolph Valentino film. You may be somewhat incredulous that these four very different ingredients combine to form something quaffable, but one sip will wash away any doubts.

  • ¾ oz. Scotch
  • ¾ oz. Cherry Heering
  • ¾ oz. Sweet Vermouth
  • ¾ oz. orange juice
  • Flamed orange peel (for garnish)

Combine all ingredients except orange peel in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously, and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with the flamed orange peel.
