Classic: Blood and Sand

Blood orange season is upon us! Well, actually, it’s almost over 😥…  So you better drop everything and read this super quick!

The Blood and Sand is a classic cocktail dating back to a 1922 film of the same name and found in the Savoy Cocktail book (home to many of our favourites).


¾ oz Scotch Whiskey
¾ oz Cherry Heering
¾ oz Sweet Vermouth
¾ oz freshly squeezed blood orange juice

Add all the ingredients to an ice-filled shaker and shake well. Pour into a chilled coupe and garnish with a slice of blood orange.

The end result looks like its name, with a deep red colour and a slightly sandy appearance. As you’d expect, the drink is quite sweet, with the blood orange providing a unique citrus flavour.

Blood orange season is almost over, so what are you waiting for? Go get some oranges!
