Blood And Sand Cocktail

Blood & Sand is a Cocktail based on the novel of the same name by writer Vicente Blasco Ibanez, later adapted into a movie. The novel tells the story of intense, fierce, full of jealousy, hatred, but also the splendor of a bullfighter and the love of a man for his mistress.



  • 2 cl scotch whiskey
  • 2 cl of orange juice
  • 2 cl cherry liqueur
  • 2 cl red vermouth



  • 1 martini glass
  • 1 shaker



  1. Make the shaker recipe “Blood and Sand”.
  2. Hit the ingredients in the shaker with ice cubes. Pour into the glass, retaining the ice cubes.
  3. Serve in a “martini glass” type glass.
  4. Garnish with an orange zest.



Preferably use a slightly peated whiskey, such as a Johnny Walker Black Label and fresh orange juice.


Blood & Sand is a great Cocktail with a little sweet taste. Cherry Heering is a great alternative to brandy because it has a more natural cherry flavor than many cherry wines on the market today. In addition, fresh orange juice is recommended instead of bottled.
