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!

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
