Delores Royale

Delores Royale cocktail with mezcal, amontillado sherry, mandarin vodka, apricot liqueur, lime juice, agave syrup, and sparkling wine

The Delores Royale is a creative recipe from Anne Robinson at Brooklyn’s Westlight cocktail bar. It’s a feast for the senses, with its golden hue, scent of orange blossoms, and a flavor akin to an undiscovered fruit at the peak of ripeness.

Mezcal and sherry are a tried-and-true combination, but Robinson adds unexpected dimension with apricot liqueur and citrus vodka (she uses Hangar One’s mandarin vodka).

The original recipe for the Delores Royale calls for Cava as the sparkling wine. You can use whatever you like, but it’s best with something on the dry side.

This is a clean, straightforward app that allows you quick access to find drinks to make based on ingredients that you have.
