Blood and Sand

Blood and Sand

This cocktail comes to us from Eddie Harris, our son and national brand ambassador currently living in Texas.  You can follow Eddie and his cocktail exploits on Instagram at @theboozygay.

Eddie writes about this cocktail:

This cocktail first appeared in 1922 as a promotional recipe for a Rudolph Valentino movie of the same name. It first appeared in the Savoy cocktail book in 1933. The film was later remade twice with the second remake starring Tyrone Power, Rita Hayworth, and Linda Darnell winning an academy award for cinematography.

So grab a glass and raise a toast!

1 oz Catoctin Creek Roundstone Rye 92 Proof
½ oz Old Pultney Maritime (or your favorite Scotch)
1½ oz Sweet Vermouth
1½ oz fresh orange juice
1½ oz Pratt Standard Cranberry Orange Syrup (or to taste)

Shake all ingredients and strain into a chilled stemmed coup.  Garnish with orange peel.
