The Blood and Sand

March 5th, 2009 · No Comments

The Blood and Sand

from Alicia & Howard McEwen, CFA

¾ oz Orange Juice

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.
