Today we offer you a simple concoction that dates back to the 1880’s. Created at the Waldorf-Astoria, the “Adonis” was inspired by an 1884 Burlesque show of the same name. It is light, refreshing and relatively low in alcohol, so a great option for an evening when you are looking for something that won’t slow you down the following day.
In a cocktail shaker glass filled with ice add:
- 1½ Ounces Fino or Manzanilla Sherry (we suggest Lustau Sherries)
- 1½ Ounces Sweet Vermouth (Carpano Antica always)
- 2 Dashes Orange Bitters
Stir ingredients until cold. Strain into a chilled cocktail saucer. Garnish with an orange peel twist.
