Sherry Martini Cocktail

Sherry Martini Cocktail

Pair gin with vermouth and you get botanicals on top of botanicals. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but bring sherry into the mix and you'll find something both more smooth and electrifying, with hints of marcona almonds and a wonderful savoury bite.

Young, dry sherry brings unexpected savouriness and nuttiness to gin. Dry sherry's heightened acidity makes for a brighter sherry cocktail.

This complex martini needs no garnish, but a sliver of Spanish ham is a nice touch, as is a lemon twist.

Combine gin and sherry in a mixing glass and fill with ice. Stir well until chilled, then strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with ham or lemon twist, if using.
