Xeres Cocktail

Xeres Cocktail
1 Dash Orange Bitters. (1 dash Angostura Orange Bitters)
1 Dash Peach Bitters. (1 dash Fee’s Peach Bitters)
1 Glass Sherry. (2 oz Blandy’s 5 Year Alvada Madeira)
Stir well and strain into cocktail glass.

I just couldn’t find a Sherry I wanted to drink during the day before the night I had to make this.

On the other hand, I had this Madeira sitting around…

Swap one Old Wine for another?

Why not? I’ve never really bonded with most Sherry, anyway.

Wow, tasty!

Feel a little bad about messing with such a tasty Madeira, but all the same, a more than pleasing cocktail.

And, I got to share the rest of the bottle with Mrs. Flannestad after dinner!

A win for both of us.

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.
