The Bolero

With Amontillado


This elegant cocktail has been captivating the mountain town of Whitefish and helping to bring Sherry to the NW of Montana.



The Bolero

Add ingredients from the least quantities to the greatest in a mixing glass.
Add ice to mixing glass and stir briefly to blend the ingredients then stop your stir and let it chill while performing the next steps.
Create a lemon pigtail with a channel knife over a 6 oz coupe, allowing the oils to express themselves over the inside of the glass.
Strain contents of mixing glass into the coupe and garnish with the lemon pigtail.
Sip, savor and breathe.
