Sherry & Tonic

Sherry and Tonic cocktail with simple syrup and orange bitters

A sherry and tonic is a classic day-drinking cocktail, with a low ABV and a bright, crisp flavor.

Everyone has their own preferences here, from the type of sherry to the proportion of soda. We’ve tried it six ways from Sunday, and we keep coming back to this recipe we found in Imbibe magazine, from Steve Robbins of Austin’s Small Victory.

Robbins calls for Amontillado sherry, a dryer type. But we’ve had it with every type of sherry, even the syrupy-sweet Pedro Ximenéz – it’s a perfect vehicle for any sherry you’ve got lying around.

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.
