The Blood & Sand: A Classic Scotch Cocktail

Named for a Rudolph Valentino film about a bullfighter, this classic Scotch cocktail tastes like neither blood nor sand. In our latest video, all-star San Francisco bartender Kevin Diedrich demonstrates how to make the classic Blood & Sand, a delicately balanced mix of whisky, sweet vermouth, cherry brandy and orange juice. This manly drink has been satisfying cocktail lovers since the early 1920s. Cheers!
