This is a massive wine cocktail! I get why it is called Inca after the Pre Columbian empire; sherry would have been the drink of the conquering Spaniards, and orgeat or almond syrup represents almond drinks that are made in South America.

The rest of the drink is sweet with rich wine and nuttiness. Again, I opted for Commonwealth gin to cut down on all the botanicals you find in London dry gins. Then I added more orgeat than is called for because if you have it you should flaunt it. It makes for a cloudier cocktail, but I would have already been cloudy with the original proportions.
  • 2 oz. gin
  • 1 oz. dry sherry
  • 1 oz. sweet vermouth
  • 1 oz. dry vermouth
  • dash orange bitters
  • several dashes orgeat (more if you like)
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
