Happy Hour: Blood and Sand
Oct 28, 2011
A few months back, Virginia and I headed to a Johnnie Walker tasting at Againn. I was instantly taken with a cocktail called, “Blood and Sand.” So I was extremely excited to see the recipe in the newspaper this week under the heading, Spooky Halloween Cocktails.
Blood and Sand
Recipe from BANK Bar and Cafe in Napa, Calif.
3/4 ounce Johnnie Walker Black scotch
3/4 ounce cherry liqueur
3/4 ounce sweet vermouth
3/4 ounce orange juice
1 thin strip orange zest
In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine the scotch, cherry liqueur, vermouth and orange juice. Strain into a martini glass, then garnish with the strip of zest.
This is a great dress for those who need to define a waistline or distract from a not so perfect one. And since it’s not satin or silk, you could also wear it to the office with a camel blazer or a navy cardi and a belt.
The dress also comes in camel and teal.
