Spanglish Cocktail

Serves: 1 • Time: 5 minutes

While brainstorming with Cervantes Ramirez of New York City’s The Ship bar, we discovered a bunch of new cocktails that use Spanish fortified wine, sherry.

In this Spanglish one, there’s a combination of distinctly American and Spanish spirits (bourbon and sherry) to create a delicious, lightly spiced drink. It’s a perfect nightcap or end-of-dinner digestif.
