Sherry to Share

This sherry-based punch delivers a wide variety of Spanish flavor, from dry Oloroso and sweet Pedro Ximénez sherry, to fruity brandy de Jerez. The three spirits blend seamlessly into a fruit basket of booze. Filled out with Cointreau and some hard apple cider for a bit of fizz, it’s dry on the nose but easy to drink—and even easier to make thanks to its full bottle proportions.

Note: When it comes to hard cider, we like Angry Orchard and its many seasonal variations, but you could also use any sweeter, hard sparkling cider or even a non-alcoholic apple cider for a lower-ABV cocktail.
