Blood And Sand

from The Craft of the Cocktail

  • .75 ounce Scotch Whisky
  • .75 ounce Cherry Heering
  • .75 ounce Sweet Vermouth
  • 1 ounce Orange Juice
  • Flamed Orange Peel (Garnish)

Shake all the ingredients well with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with the flamed orange peel.

At first glance, this unusual cocktail seemed a godawful mix. But over time, I noted that the recipe appeared in some serious cocktail books, so I finally tried it. The taste convinced me never to judge a drink again without tasting it.
