50 ml Dry Sack Oloroso medium sweet solera especial 15 year old Williams & Humbert sherry
20 ml Park XO cognac
20 ml lime juice
20 ml Pierre Ferrand curaçao
2,5 ml sugar syrup (2:1)
Preparation: Shaken. Single strain.
We were first served this drink by Hendrik Albrecht at Le Lion in Hamburg on 28 November 2015. Only shortly before, if we remember correctly, it may have been a few days, Mario Kappes had developed the drink, and so the drink did not have a name at that time. Since Mario is an excellent mixologist and we knew his love for sherry, it was immediately clear to us that we wanted to try this new drink right away.
The drink only got its name in the days after our visit, so we first learned about it on our next visit to the bar on 29 December. That evening, Mario was mixing behind the bar, so we took the opportunity to ask him about it. He was inspired by the sherry he used. He liked it so much that he wanted to make a drink with it that would put this sherry in the centre.
It’s a great drink and we highly recommend it to all our readers.
