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 juice
  • 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.
