Enjoying sherry wine / cocktails / Pedro Ximénez

Kansas City Manhattan

With Pedro Ximénez


Created specificlly to highlight Rieger Kansas City Whiskey, which features sweet Oloroso in the blend, this twist on a classic is layered with PX Sherry and Barolo Chinato in a perfect complement.  Dale “King Cocktail” Degroff’s Pimento Bitters adds a spicy balance to this Manhattan variation.

Serving and consuming

Pedro Ximénez with food

Pedro Ximénez should be served slightly chilled, at between 12 and 14ºC, though the younger wines may be served at lower temperatures.

It is a dessert in itself, though combining exceptionally well with desserts based on slightly bitter chocolate, with ice-creams and blue cheeses of great intensity, such as Cabrales or Roquefort.

  • Always serve slightly chilled

    Serve between 12 & 14º C in a white wine glass.

  • A dessert in itself

    A perfect way to finish a meal. Pairs perfectly with desserts that aren't too sweet.

  • Style of glass

    In traditional wide rimmed catavinos or in a white wine glass.
