Comments

I was waiting to try this until I had homemade orgeat (thanks Zachary!). Orgeat and Sherry- this combination is new to me, but they seem made for each other. I also tried this with a dash of Luxardo Maraschino, which is really good if you like that funky note.


A very tasty cocktail; sweet but not too sweet and slightly tart. All of the flavors blend together to make a cocktail that can easily become one's favorite. I did not include a dash of Luxardo Maraschino as suggested in a prior comment. I may be wrong, but I don't believe it can improve what is already a great drink. My fear is that the Luxardo might overwhelm the balance of flavors. But, keeping an open mind, I will try it. Who knows--maybe it can be fixed even though it's not broken!
