Sherry & Tonic
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.
Build ingredients in the order given in an ice-filled short glass. Express a lemon or orange twist over the drink.
Use the twist to garnish the drink, or discard and garnish with fresh slices of orange or lemon and a mint sprig.
