1/2 Sherry. (1 oz Bodega Dios Baco Amontillado Sherry)
1/2 Dry Gin. (1 oz North Shore Distiller’s No. 6)
Stir well and strain into cocktail glass. Add a cherry.
Not really much to get too excited about here. With a gin and a sherry you enjoy, this is not a bad appetizer cocktail. On the other hand, there’s nothing particularly deep going on. A dash of orange bitters, maybe, and an orange twist would do much to point up the details on this one.
I guess the name is a pun on “rococo“. Beyond that, your guess is as good as mine.
This post is one in a series documenting my ongoing effort to make all of the cocktails in the Savoy Cocktail Book, starting at the first, Abbey, and ending at the last, Zed.
