A Few Words

Another old school joint. Quite a nice little drink! This cocktail first appeared in Hugo Ensslin’s ‘Recipes for Mixed Drinks’ in 1916. It’s very Manhattan-esque but more hints of citrus from the Grand Marnier and slightly funky from the sherry. The original recipe doesn’t call for a specific type of sherry, but I went with a Manzanilla which resulted in a more dry crisp bite. If you want it to be more like a Manhattan, go with an Amontillado or an Oloroso. Cheers!
