Blood & Sand Cocktail

"Named for a Rudolph Valentino film about a bullfighter, this classic Scotch cocktail tastes like neither blood nor sand. It’s a complex combination of fruity and smoky, and a cinch to make with just four ingredients of identical proportions."


3⁄4 oz The Glenrothes Select Reserve Single Malt Scotch Whisky

3⁄4 oz Sweet vermouth

3⁄4 oz Cherry Heering

3⁄4 oz Orange juice

1 Orange peel, Garnish

Add all the ingredients to a shaker and fill with ice.

Shake, and strain into a chilled coupe or cocktail glass.

Garnish with an orange peel.
