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.

Instructions

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
