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!

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
