Description

Born just slightly after the Prohibition era, this confounding cocktail first appeared in The Savoy Cocktail Book, written by Harry Craddock in 1930. It was named to pay homage to a classic film from 1922, starring Rudolph Valentino portraying a bullfighter. The name of the film was assumed to be a major part of it’s success, although the cocktail is a different story altogether. With a boggling mixture of blended scotch, cherry brandy, sweet vermouth, and fresh orange juice, this drink doesn’t read as a huge success on paper, especially with a name so violently picturesque. Although once you taste it, all preconceived notions of what should and should not work well together wash away, and you are simply met with a delicious, balanced, and unique cocktail. Take one to break the norm and step out of your comfort zone, pairs best with an inquisitive mind and a curious palette.
