Fino Martini

As I am constantly discovering, sherry, with its infinite variety, can be substituted for any fortified wine. In this Martini it is taking the place of dry vermouth. You don't notice so small an amount of sherry in a gin cocktail, but you can choose to do this with vodka as well. I like how this cocktail is non-specific about base spirits. It's still a Martini, right? Aylesbury Duck vodka makes a great base for the Fino Martini.
  • 3 oz. vodka or gin
  • 1/2 oz. fino sherry
  • lemon twist
Stir liquid ingredients except lemon twist with ice in a mixing glass and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Twist lemon peel over glass and drop in.
