Desert Healer

Desert Healer highball cocktail with gin, cherry brandy, orange juice, and ginger beer

The Desert Healer is a long-overlooked should-be classic from The Ultimate Bar Book by Mittie Hellmich. It’s reminiscent of the classic Blood and Sand cocktail, with gin in place of scotch and lengthened with ginger beer for improved day-drinking potential.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake everything (except the ginger beer) with ice. Strain into a tall ice-filled glass and top with the ginger beer.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
