Shake, strain, up.


The version that Death & Co bartenders gave me is simpler and more sherry-forward: 2 oz Amontillado 1/2 oz Appleton V/X 1/2 oz lemon juice 1/4 oz cane syrup 1 dash Ango. This makes for a stimulating and light drink that tastes like lightly tart Amontillado with some of the flavor contrast turned up.

Really good-nice on a cold February night but can imagine it being excellent for summer too

Lovely drink. Used cinnamon syrup as I had some and worked really well

I agree, sophisticated is the first word that jumps to mind. I bought the apricot liqueur just so I could try this, and it was well worth it!
