El Palomino

April 29, 2010

Oloroso sherry
209 gin
sparkling white wine

Muddle a medium strawberry. Combine all but the sparkling wine, shake and fine-strain into a champagne flute. Top with sparkling wine. Garnish with a lemon twist.

This cocktail has a classic aperitif profile: Clean and crisp, but with enough intriguing herbal-fruit notes to really wake up your appetite. The name comes from the Palomino Fino grape from which sherry is made.
