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!
