COCKTAILS FROM THE
Frederic Yarm, La Brasa
What would a mix of a Sherry Flip and Bamboo cocktail be? Creamy and clean with a hint of orange, spice, and herbal notes is the answer.
Emily Mitchell, Bar Margo, Four Seasons
The Albero Highball is quintessentially an Amontillado lengthener that emphasizes quality and minerality.
Stephanie Schneider, Huckleberry Bar Brooklyn, NY
Moscatel adds a nutty sweetness to this elegant cocktail. Enjoy it as an aperitif, served with a meal, or as a digestif. The Perfect Lepanto was awarded 2nd runner up in the 2011 Sherry Cocktail Competition.
Joe Robinson, Standby
Sherry and agave spirits are a match made in heaven. La Joya proves it once again, bringing together the raisin sweetness of PX with the smokey fruitness of mezcal and herbacious Green Chartreuse.
Chris Muscardin, The Osprey Tavern
Cream sherry is the only sweetener in this snappy autumn sour. Its richness balances out the acidity of the Earl Grey shrub & lemon juice quite pleasantly, allowing its caramel and dried fruit to shine with the gin and Benedictine.

Frederic Yarm, Cocktail Virgin
Inspired by pairing coffee and Pedro Ximenez sherry, this is a riff on a Tiki classic, the Mr. Bali Hai. Amontillado (or Oloroso) bulks up the sherry quotient and helps to beat down PX's sweetness to a manageable a la minute cream sherry level.
Melissa Markert , The Dead Rabbit

The Fino Sherry really shines here. It is spirit forward yet light and approachable for all tastes. The perfect vodka and sherry cocktail.
