Only a total boozehound whore would even dream up such a thing as Negroni Season. 

The first time I’ve regretted adding my uncle as a gchat friend was this morning, as I realized I really can’t make this my “status.”

Blood and Sand

turnabout:

americandrink:

I’ve never actually tasted a Blood & Sand. It seems like that classic foreign film I keep wanting to watch, but I just can’t bring myself queue up whenever I sit down for movietime.

JT Dobbs

First they wrote the book1, then they made a movie2 (for which the drink is named,) then they remade it four separate times, once with Sharon Stone. The French re-imagined it as a study of male friendship and determination with a sprinkling of anti-war sentiment and homoerotic undertones3. The STARZ Network simply used the title for their boob-n-gore-soaked, gladiatorial man-drama, Spartacus: Blood and Sand.

If all that sounds confusing, off-putting or even intriguing, let me present to you the ingredients:

The Blood and Sand

  • 1 - 1.5 oz. blended scotch
  • 1 oz. fresh orange Juice
  • 3/4 oz. sweet vermouth
  • 3/4 oz. cherry brandy
Shake this unholy gaggle of ingredients with ice and strain into a coupe or martini glass. Garnish with a good cherry and if you’re really going to go this far, a flamed orange zest.

God this sounds good.
