The Sand Dance cocktail is whiskey based and just a little bit sweet and fruity. As with any cocktail calling for whiskey, you want to use something that’s tasty, but don’t waste your good whiskey on a cocktail. Jack Daniels is more than sufficient for a drink like this.
This drink has a mellow flavor and feel, reminding me of fall. It’s good for anytime you need to kick back and relax.
- 1 1/2 ounces blended whiskey
- 1/2 ounce cherry brandy
- 2 ounces cranberry juice
Fill a highball glass most of the way with ice cubes. Pour in all three ingredients. Stir well.
