This is a nice citrus and cream dessert drink made with sherry and blackberry brandy. Fino sherry is designed to be dry and light to counter the sweetness of the triple sec and blackberry brandy.

Cadiz is the name of the province from which sherry is made in Spain. I'm not sure how the rest of the drink fits with the name, though. I like how strong it is, and how well the orange and blackberry flavors balance with sherry. For this I used my apple brandy into which I infused blackberries and mixed with sugar.
  • 1 1/2 oz. dry sherry
  • 1 oz. blackberry brandy (home made blackberry flavored brandy used)
  • 1/2 oz. triple sec
  • 1/2 oz. half-and-half
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
