Anyone who follows our musings on Sherry regularly will already be well aware of how versatile Sherry is, on its own and with food.
But what bar tenders round the UK are discovering is that Sherry is also a fantastic ingredient in contemporary and classic cocktail recipes. From a Tom Collins with Fino to Negroni with Oloroso there is a whole new world of discovery for Sherry lovers when mixing it in cocktails.
To celebrate the winter season and Sherry’s amazing contribution to the world of cocktails, we are giving you the chance to win a pair of tickets to our Sherry Cocktail Masterclass*, to be held in London in early February by internationally acclaimed drinks writer Dave Broom.
All you need to do is share with us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter your favourite Sherry cocktail in the most engaging way you can, be it step by step photos of how to make it, a short video on social media of you enjoying it or perhaps photos at your favourite bar that serves your ideal Sherry Cocktail. What you share and how you share it is up to you but just be sure to tag #SherryCocktailsUK.
Once you’ve got something to share, just tag us in and we'll join in the fun. Then, in January we will pick fifteen winners, each of who will join us - with a guest - for an afternoon of learning about Sherry, tasting Sherry and mixing your own original Sherry Cocktails.
If you need some inspiration then check out our recipe book of Sherry cocktails from around the world here. And, to find out more about Dave Broom and why he loves Sherry, you can read his Sherry blog for whisky drinkers here.
Good luck, have fun and don’t forget to enjoy responsibly.
