The Sheik

“At night when you’re asleep,
Into your tent I’ll creep…”

Well, we hope you’ll be carrying a tray of these serious cocktails. Something with brandy, fresh citrus, and the sweet darkness of vermouth and cherry. Where’s the fainting couch?

To an iced shaker, add:

1 ounce Napoleon brandy
1 ounce freshly-squeezed orange juice
3/4 ounce sweet vermouth
3/4 ounce Cherry Heering

Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

For garnish: score an orange rind to create a crosshatching pattern, then peel a large swath and roll it around a pick to create the “turban.” (See picture below) Dropping in a brandied cherry would not be looked upon as amiss.

An homage to the classic “Blood and Sand Cocktail” and inspired by clothing designer Matthew Camp and his love of this drink, with a nod to Rudy Valentino.
