Adonis Cocktail 11

from The Craft of the Cocktail

  • 1 ounce Dry Sherry
  • 1 ounce Sweet Vermouth
  • 1 ounce Orange Juice

  • dash Simple Syrup
  • Orange Peel (Garnish)

Shake with ice and strain into a small cocktail glass. Garnish with the orange peel.

Named after a Broadway musical in 1884. The recipe for the Adonis as listed in most books is simply sherry, vermouth, and bitters, but this adaptation is far superior, with many more layers of >avor. Try muddling a section of orange in the bar glass with syrup before adding the remaining ingredients; then shake.
