A(i)nt no S(c)herry – that’s what we decided to call this Cocktail Detour original. It takes full advantage of the deliciousness of Maraschino liqueur and cherries as well as dry sherry.
We like how balanced this cocktail is. It’s many different flavours compliment each other and create a boozy and stiff cocktail, that’s still so easy and enjoyable to sip.
Yes, he is a Humble Hero, Linus Morgan who’s the creator of this awesome cocktail. It’s a low-ABV recipe with an interesting mix of Lillet Blanc, celery and coffee!
This cocktail was really enjoyable! Not very sweet, rather a bit dry from the sherry and a bit tart because of the gin and grapefruit. You could sip quite eagerly on it without getting too affected
The Legend is an interesting one. It mixes rum and Cognac, something you don’t see too often. But then also some other high quality ingredients are added. Lustau sherry and amaro Nonino are both such great spirits on their own, and combined with the rum and the Cognac a legend is definitely born.
An amaro, another amaro, rum and sherry. Those are the four wonderful ingredients in this cocktail
Greg Henry’s “Savory Cocktails” is quickly becoming a favorite of ours, and today we are making the Silk & Gators cocktail from his book. There is something intricate about cognac cocktails isn’t there? In this drink the cocktail is the true star, supported by minor amounts of other spirits.
