Lustau Manzanilla Papirusa Solera Reserva Very Dry
When it comes to sherry, I find people either love it or hate it – there is no in between. I happily fall on the loving side of Palomino given its savouriness, its freshness, and it’s versatility. Although I am incredibly happy to sip on sherry in all it’s raw glory, I also love how it lends itself so well to cocktail creations like the one pictured here.
Jean-François St-Pierre, manager of VV Taverna , created this cracker of a cocktail is named Rossonian Standard. He has generously shared his recipe so you can recreate it at home! ( But if I were you, I’d head over to the Tavern and have a glass or two there because what beats great service and classy presentation?!)
1.25 oz of Lustau Manzanilla Papirusa
0.75 oz Lustau Brandy de Jerez
0.5 oz of lemon juice
0.25 oz of simple syrup
2 dashes of rhubarb bitters
2 drops of orange bitters
a pinch of salt
Add a little lemon zest, a couple of olives and VOILA! The perfect cocktail to start the weekend off right. It’s savoury and bitter components, balanced by the slightest kiss of sweetness makes this drink super refreshing and delicious. I doubt my presentation skills will be as appealing as Jean François, but it certainly won’t be lacking in flavour. Santé!
