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.

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!
