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.

Instructions

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
