San Pancho

San Pancho sherry and gin cocktail recipe

This drink, from Caitlin Laman of San Francisco’s Trick Dog, is an excellent example of how well dry sherry partners with strawberries. Laman calls for La Cigarrera Manzanilla, but it’s great with other dry styles as well.

The recipe is similar to the Collins template, but swapping in sherry for some of the gin makes for a lower-ABV drink. Perfect for day drinking!

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake everything (except the sparkling water) with ice. Strain into a tall, narrow ice-filled glass and top with sparkling water.

Garnish with a lemon twist or wheel, a strawberry, a mint spring – or all of the above!

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
