#ThirstyThursdays: Blood and Sand
Shannon Clifton has left all her vices in the past — drugs, booze, bad boyfriends. But when the last bad boy mistake comes chasing, her next one saves her. Jonah Moran is hot, persuasive, and everything she could hope for, but can it last?
It’s a refreshing Thirsty Thursday with Shannon and Jonah in Cherishing You. She’s all sodas with lime these days, but Jonah still loves a fiery Scotch.
Blood and Sand
Named for the 1920s movie featuring an ill-fated love triangle, this blended Scotch cocktail brings drama.
1 oz Scotch
1 oz blood orange juice
3/4 oz cherry brandy
3/4 oz sweet vermouth
All of it heads for the cocktail shaker with some ice. Shake. Shimmy. Strain into the a martini glass or a champagne coupe (not a flute, the one shaped like Marie Antoinette’s… oh, just Google it).
