“I’m very type-A, and many things in my life are about control and domination, but eating should be a submissive experience, where you let down your guard and enjoy the ride.”

-Anthony Bourdain
Sherry Sour

Sherry and tequila are one of my favorite combinations, whether it’s shaken with lime or stirred in a Negroni riff. Sweet, sour, nutty, and dry, this version of a sherry sour has added complexity from falernum, a clove and lime flavored liqueur hailing from the Caribbean.

Sherry Sour

1⁄4 oz falernum
3⁄4 oz honey
1 oz fresh lemon
1⁄2 oz añejo tequila
1 oz amontillado sherry

  1. Combine all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice.
  2. Shake vigorously for about 40-60 seconds, until shaker tin freezes in your hand.
  3. Double strain through a fine sieve into a stemmed cocktail glass. Garnish with a dehydrated lemon wheel.
