Our recommended Sherry Cocktail

Shy Smile

Palo Cortado, Amaras Mezcal, Giffard Passion Fruit, lemon, egg white

It's not often Sherry gets paired with tropical fruit outside of a cobbler-esque cocktail, however this drink does it harmoniously. On the first sip, Shy Smile ignites all parts of the palate with a sweet, savory, citrus, and spice combination that leaves even the most experiences drinker wanting more.  The subtle peppery smoke of the mezcal bridges the brightness of the passion fruit with the toasted almond and vanilla finishes of the Palo Cortado.  Not only is this drink incredibly refreshing and complex in flavor, it's also easy to drink and beautiful to look at.
