About The Blood and Sand Cocktail

The classic Scotch-based Blood and Sand cocktail tastes like neither. The recipe for the Blood and Sand first appeared in print in Harry Craddock’s 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book. It’s a complex combination of fruity and smoky, and a cinch to make with just four ingredients of identical proportions. Try it yourself with the fool-proof recipe below.
