This old combination of sherry and vermouths has slipped off the favorite’s list. It deserves a second look, as would any passing Adonis. This is a low-alcohol aperitif and good accompaniment before or with tapas.
1 ounce dry sherry
1/2 ounce sweet vermouth
1/2 ounce dry vermouth
2 dashes orange bitters
Combine the ingredients in an ice-filled mixing glass until well chilled. Strain into a chilled cocktail or aperitif glass.
strong>Tasting notes: Herbal and prunes with a surprising light celery finish.
Tomorrow: Sour and sunset
