Blod & Skar

Blod & Skar

Blod & Skar cocktail with aquavit, scotch, cherry liqueur, sweet vermouth, and orange juice

Blod & Skar is a Blood and Sand riff from Sean Davey at Broder in Portland, Oregon. Where the original focuses on the sweet flavors of cherry and orange, this incarnation leans into the herbal side of the drink. Aquavit takes center stage with a warm caraway flavor that matches well with a spice-forward sweet vermouth – like Carpano Antica Formula, Davey’s recommendation.



Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass. Garnish with an orange twist (flamed, preferably).

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
