Brandy-Scotch Orange Cocktail

"This one is called Blood and Sand. This long forgotten Prohibition-era cocktail is named for the 1922 movie starring Rudolph Valentino. It is the movie which, on his death bed, he stated he'd like to be his legacy. Try this drink straight up, and toast one of the most revered actors of silent film."
