Guest Bram Meehan: Blood and Sand

Refreshing Beverage of the Week
Though it's a classic, I first ran across this when I got a copy of An Illustrated Guide to Cocktails (no longer available on Etsy — but keep an eye out for an edition from Penguin). Named after the movie, little else is known of its origins …

1 oz. Scotch (blended is fine)
1 oz. sweet vermouth
1 oz. Cherry Heering
1 oz. orange juice

Combine ingredients over ice, "shake like a matador's cape," and strain into a cocktail glass.
