  • The Blood and Sand cocktail, in all its tiki-ness.

The scotch-based cocktail was introduced following the 1922 bullfighter film from Rudolph Valentino, Blood and Sand. It's one of the few non-rum "tiki" cocktails, and thanks to Dean Hurst, Director of Spirits at Sidebern's and President of the Left Coast Bartenders' Guild, you can try this vintage drink on for size at home.

Blood and Sand (1920s)
Makes one drink


.75 oz. Blended Scotch

.75 oz. Cherry Heering

.75 oz. Sweet Vermouth

.75 oz. Fresh Orange Juice


Combine ingredients in a mixing tin. Shake with ice. Strain into a cocktail coupe. The Tiki Ti in Los Angeles serves the cocktail with tequila instead of scotch. We recommend both versions.
