Enjoying sherry wine / cocktails / Oloroso

La Capataza

With Oloroso


This cocktail represents Sherry from all sides (Manzanilla to Oloroso, even highlighting an East India style). Those unfamiliar with the wonders of sherry will be left feeling like they've always known her; and those who have a closer relationship will be ready to get down on one knee.
