When you see this drink, there’s no way you won’t smile — it’s like a work of art. Sherry is a fortified wine, meaning that it has a little brandy added. It’s higher in alcohol than wine but is served here with a splash of club soda, making it perfect for sipping.Recipe courtesy of "ZERO PROOF drinks & more 100 Recipes for Mocktails & Low-Alcohol Cocktails" by Maureen Petrosky © 2021 Reprinted with permission.
