Edinburgh Scotland is home to one of Europe's premier cocktail bars, the world famous Bramble Bar. Earlier this month, top mixologist Mike Aikman created this drink using Chivas Regal blended Scotch whisky, passion fruit puree, Lillet rouge and Cherry Heering. While the original Blood and Sand is a classic in its own right, Aikman's reinterpretation may actually be better than the original. Whip one up yourself to see if you agree with me.
