Girlie Drink of the Week

Posted by LC Aggie Sith on Tuesday, December 18, 2012 in BOOZE!!, Social

Today’s inspiration comes from David Burge, AKA Iowahawk. It has nothing to do with cars. Or satire. Or kitsch.

You know how you start thinking of one thing, which leads to another, and then another, and by the time you snap from that fog of consciousness you are at some point that has nothing to do with the original thought?

This is just like that. See, David (I hope I can call him David) posted his recipe for The Rudolph, which is one shot each of vodka, Bailey’s™, coconut rum, and half & half, shaken with ice, and strained into a cocktail glass and garnished with a cherry. Cute, right? Also, deadly. One of these and I will pass out. So as I was mulling the possibility of tweaking the recipe, I began to think of Rudolph cartoons, and that led to thinking of Rudolph movies, and different Rudolphs and finally Rudolph Valentino.

I did warn you this was rather convoluted.

Anyway, I had recalled seeing a recipe in an old bartender’s guide named for a Rudolph Valentino movie. It wasn’t The Sheik, I was sure of that. So, I searched until BAM!!! I found it.

blood and sand

Blood and Sand

  • 2 oz. Scotch whiskey
  • 2 tbsp. Orange juice
  • 1 tbsp. Cherry brandy
  • 1 tbsp Sweet vermouth

Shake all ingredients over ice, and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a cherry.

If this entire post was disjointed, blame the meds. Trust me, if I were drunk this post would have made far more sense somehow. You know that’s true ;)
