Tuxedo

The Tuxedo is one of our favorite 19th-century sherry cocktails. It’s crisp, bright, fragrant, and eminently sippable.

It was invented at the Waldorf-Astoria bar and named after Tuxedo Park, a late-1800s country club that was the birthplace of the the tuxedo jacket. There are other drinks with the same moniker, but this version came first – at least, according to legendary cocktail historian David Wondrich.

It’s a beautiful drink, clear like a diamond, with just the faintest hint of gold from the sherry. Sherry makes a lovely replacement for folks who aren’t fans of vermouth but still want a classy Martini-styled dry drink. Typically, a Tuxedo is made with fino sherry, but you can use any other dry style you like.

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.

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.
