The Betty Carter is New York mixologist Jeremy Oertel’s homage to the legendary jazz singer of the same name, featuring ingredients just as rich and soulful as her music.
Oertel calls for Pedro Ximénez sherry, among the sweetest of all sherries. You can use a different type of sweet sherry, but the final drink will be just a touch less rich and raisin-y.
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass.
