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.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
