Blood and Sand Cocktail

I'm honestly not sure how I came across this drink.  Somewhere online, some rabbit trail down into the depths of the interwebs.  But I'm glad I did.  I'm not normally a scotch drinker, so I did have a pause, but the other ingredients definitely add a sweetness that I appreciate.  Plus, this is an antique drink - dating back to around 1930!  A nice way to celebrate the beginning of holiday vacation.

Blood and Sand Cocktail

¾ ounce blended Scotch
¾ ounce cherry Heering
¾ ounce sweet vermouth
¾ ounce blood orange juice

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with some ice.  Shake just until blended, then serve in your choice of glass.
