1 oz Scotch, Monkey Shoulder
1⁄2 oz Cherry Liqueur
3⁄4 oz Strega
1 ds Blood Orange Bitters

Stir with ice, strain into a coupe or Nick & Nora glass. No garnish.


My favourite shop was out of Cherry Heering so the cherry component I made this with originally was de Kuyper, which is quite syrupy. If using Heering, maybe adjust quantities to 3/4 oz of everything


A Blood & Sand with a witchy (Strega) twist. Perhaps inspired by one too many Dresden Files books.
