U.S.S. Wondrich

U.S.S. Wondrich sherry cocktail

Mixologist and cocktail historian Jeff “Beachbum” Berry invented this drink and named it in honor of David Wondrich, another titan in the field of drink history.

It’s not too strong, and has a wonderful flavor reminiscent of spiced raisin bread. Berry makes it with Amontillado sherry, but any dry sherry will do. We even tried it once with a medium-sweet Oloroso and it was just as good.

Berry’s original recipe called for Sabra, a spicy-bitter-sweet chocolate orange liqueur from Israel, but he allows for the substitution of allspice dram, which is the version we have here.

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.
