This cocktail, on the menu at New York City's cocktail bar-restaurant The Beagle, is a favorite of creator Dan Greenbaum. Says the bar manager, "it's dry, sharp, with a nice acidity — a great apéritif and one of those drinks that could work with any food."

Ingredients

  • 1 dash orange bitters
  • 1 ½ ounces fino sherry
  • 1 ½ ounces sweet vermouth
  • Ice
  • Lemon twist, for garnish

Directions

Stir the bitters, sherry, and sweet vermouth together with ice. To serve, strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with a lemon twist. 

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
