Blood and Sand II


I got it totally wrong the 1st time around. After tasting Alembic’s Blood and Sand, I sidled up to the bartender and asked specifically what she uses.

The classic is equal portion of all liquors and juice. But we find the syrupy month feel of cherry herring a little off-putting. I am aiming for the clean, herbaceous flavor as well as the tea-tannin finish of what I had at Alembic.

Not quite there, but I am working on it. Makes 2

  • 1 ½ oz Glenrothes Special Reserve
  • 1 ½ oz Punt e Mes (don’t use other Italian sweet vermouth)
  • ½ oz Peter Herring Cherry Herring
  • 1 ½ oz Orange juice
  • Orange peel as garnish
