If you like gin, dry vermouth, or martinis chances are you will like a Fino Sherry cocktail. This recipe was developed by Handsome Hubby and it desperately needs a name. If you missed our pairing of Fino Sherry with Ajo Blanco and Mussles with Fennel then catch up here.
The rum in our Fino Sherry cocktail is made by 4 Spirits Distillery in Corvallis, Oregon. They not only make excellent spirits but their business is dedicated to all U.S war veterans and active service members, specifically four that lost their lives in service with the Oregon National Guard.
Please help us name this Fino Sherry cocktail. It is orangey, spicy, nutty, vegetal, tangy, refreshing, and damn good. We really wanted to name it Privateer because of the rum connection but that was taken. Let us know what you think.
