Sherry Sipping - U.S. Sherry News from the Week

Post Sherry Week, the wines of Jerez are as hot as ever.

While Sherry Week has come to a close, it is clear there is still a lot of exciting inspiration being drawn from the wines of Jerez. 

Hilary Deutsch, writing for the official James Beard Foundation blog, headed over to The NoMad Bar in New York City to taste their Sherry Blood Mary, created by Leo Robitschek.  With Amontillado taking the place of Vodka, it's a Blood Mary like no other.  Don't miss the video here that shows you step by step how to make it yourself.  And if while you're The NoMad you also happen to have the 2015 U.S. Sherry Cocktail Competition winning cocktail, Broken Spanish by Pietro Collina (recipe here), we promise not to tell.

This is the most seductive drink I’ve ever seen.

The lucky folks behind Brightest Young Things took a Sherry cocktail tour at José Andrés' barmini in Washington, DC, where Sherry Week is still in full swing.  From classics like the Adonis to the unbelievably innovative Cartujano, a frothy and lightly sweet cocktail made with Manzanilla, Oloroso, Cognac, chamomile, egg, fresh lime juice, Agnostura bitters, and housemade chicha morada, there is something for everyone.

With fried chicken or fish and chips, [Sherry] is amazing.

Justin Vann of Public Services in Houston, Texas, joined Tasting Table and dropped by the Brooklyn Brewery to host a Sherry Shack, where he poured a range of Sherry by the glass and expounded each of their virtues.  Learn about his serving and food pairings suggestions here, or stop by Public Services to experience their unbelievable Sherry list for yourself.

And filed under the-best-news-you'll-hear-all-day, Sherry is good for you!  Wine Spectator published a new study out of Australia showing that those who suffer from type 2 diabetes and consume moderate amounts of fortified wines like Sherry or white wines had a lower risk of diabetic retinopathy, a vision problem brought on by diabetes, than those who drink red wine. Sherry is the gift that keeps on giving.
