Witches' Blood

A Blood & Sand for the supernaturals among us
1 oz Scotch, Monkey Shoulder
12 oz Cherry Liqueur
34 oz Sweet vermouth, Dolin
34 oz Strega
1 ds Blood Orange Bitters
Instructions
Stir with ice, strain into a coupe or Nick & Nora glass. No garnish.
Notes
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
History
A Blood & Sand with a witchy (Strega) twist. Perhaps inspired by one too many Dresden Files books.
