Girl From Jerez

from PDT

  • 1 oz. Rhum Clément V.S.O.P.
  • 1 oz. Mãe De Ouro Cachaça
  • .75 oz. Lime Juice
  • .5 oz. Lustau Pedro Ximénez Sherry
  • 1 barspoon St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram

Shake with ice and strain into a chilled coupe. Garnish with grated nutmeg.

Inspired by the smoothness of Stan Getz's saxophone in "Girl from Ipanema," I softened the citrus in this Brazilian cachaça-based Daiquiri with Pedro Ximénez from Jerez. —Jim Meehan, Spring 2009
