Shake or stir your way to a great cocktail.
It’s time to prep for Halloween and Day of the Dead. This hearty cocktail pairs with colder weather, and it’s also great for entertaining. Shaken or stirred, here we go:
Blood and Sand Cocktail
- ¾ oz. Scotch (Use a blended Scotch for lower proofs and smoother cocktails. There’s
no need to break out the single malts.)
- ¾ oz. sweet vermouth
- ¾ oz. cherry Heering liqueur
- ¾ oz. freshly-squeezed
- orange peel for garnish
Pour liquids into a cocktail shaker. Shake and pour. Or add ingredients to a pitcher, stir and pour. Add orange peel for garnish.
