What a pleasant fortified wine cocktail. Sherry and vermouth add a characterful flavor to this slightly less alcoholic drink (though the proportions are pretty hefty.) Supposedly you can drink these all night, but more importantly, you will want to.

The recipe calls for Pernod, but I kept it drier by substituting Absente Refined absinthe. This was a pretty good move. There was plenty of spice flavor and wine texture from start to finish.
  • 2 oz. dry sherry
  • 1 1/2 oz. dry vermouth
  • dash Pernod (Absente Refined used)
  • dash Angostura bitters
  • lemon twist
Combine all ingredients except lemon twist in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with lemon twist.
