A Blood and Sand Cocktail as mixed by Ben at Armsby Abbey in WorcesterThe Blood and Sand is a seldom-seen Scotch-based cocktail, a relic from the days when every bar had blended Scotch whiskey that was used in cocktails like any other whiskey.

Since the single-malts have taken over, you don't see Scotch in cocktails very often. Try this with a decent blended whiskey.
