U.S.S. Wondrich

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.
