The Blood and Sand
from Alicia & Howard McEwen, CFA

¾ oz Scotch
¾ oz Sweet Vermouth
¾ oz Cherry Heering Cherry Liqueur
Shake with ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
This was scheduled to be the February 08 cocktail. However a good friend passed away the Saturday before the event so we canceled it. However, this will be the one we serve in April. My God is this a good drink. Alicia declared at first sip that it bumped off the Pomegranate Manhattan as her favorite.
It does have a very sensual and sexy feel to it. Very romantic. Try it for anniversaries or night outs.
Scott Sargent who sold us our Kia sent me the following email that I think is the best testament to the Blood and Sand.
The Blood and Sand is the best drink that I have ever tried. My wife and I had a date night on Saturday and went to GameWorks/ Jaxs down at Newport on the Levee for drinks and dinner. With technology today I was able to find the recipe for Blood and Sand on my Blackberry and had the bartender make me one. In result of this after dinner we had a little down time before our next engagement and we ran to the Party Source across the street and got everything I needed to make it at home.
