Booze Up Your Sherry

When it comes to wine cocktails, I find there’s no flavor compliment more felicitous than a good slug of liquor. The drink below by yours truly is an equal parts trio like Whispers of the Frost except with rum instead of port. Puerto Rican rum is a good choice for this Manhattan-type drink, though a more full-bodied style like Pampero Aniversario seems appropriate and would add interest.


W 67th St
  • 1 oz rye
  • 1 oz gold rum
  • 1 oz East India Solera sherry
  • 2 dashes Angostura Bitters
Stir with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Brandied cherry.

For the sherry, East India Solera was what I happened to have though anything in the medium-to-cream zone would probably work. Or use madeira.
