Enjoying sherry wine / cocktails / Oloroso

The Pyrenees

With Oloroso


This cocktail is a trip!  It pushes the drinker to enjoy multiple sherries in a different way. The earthiness of the coffee infused Dolin Blanc play so nicely with the saline and yeastiness of the Tio Pepe fino sherry. The Guatemala Finca el Injerto has a buttery structure, supported by honey and brown sugar with complimentary notes of orange, plum and dark chocolate. There is weight and body with the combination of Pierre Ferrand cognac and Lustau Moscatel sherry.  And the Lepanto spanish brandy and Lustau Oloroso sherry compliment each other so well, bringing out notes of honey and almonds. The cherry on top is a shout out to Manzanilla sherry by using a couple dashes of honey-chamomile bitters, since Manzanilla means chamomile in Spanish.
