I think twitter and instgram have eliminated anyone's desire to send me a cocktail (c'mon... a quick photo and recipe to email@example.com- it can really be anything!).
So... I'll submit one we made this weekend: a variation of a classic.
Nicole's Blood Orange Blood and Sand
.75 oz Chivas 18yr Scotch
.75 oz Dolin sweet vermouth
.75 oz Luxardo Cherry liqueur
.75 oz blood orange juice
Luxardo cherry garnish
Smokey malt, sweet ripe cherry balanced with tart blood orange- but not too bitter or sweet. A little commitment to get the bottles which can be found (or easy substitutions) at liquor stores, and a bag of blood oranges is around $4 at supermarkets. Worth the effort!
