Moderne Barn’s Three Sherries Uses Rare Emilio Lustau Manzanilla Sherry
Found only in Spain, this particular sherry is a gem, especially when combined with Dos Maderas Pedro Ximénez cask-aged rum and Gran Duque d’Alba Solera Gran Reserva Brandy de Jerez.
■ 1 oz Emilio Lustau light Manzanilla sherry
■ ¾ oz Dos Maderas P.X. cask-aged rum
■ ¾ oz Gran Duque d'Alba Solera Gran Reserva Brandy de Jerez
■ 1 oz Ruby Red grapefruit juice
■ 1-2 dashes grapefruit bitters
Shake all ingredients and strain over ice; garnish with a grapefruit twist.
“In this cocktail, I incorporate three different sherries: Lustau light Manzanilla sherry, Dos Maderas Pedro Ximénez cask-aged rum, and Gran Duque d’Alba Solera Gran Reserva Brandy de Jerez—the ingredients provide a unique and unusual flavor that works very well,” says Wine Director Matthew Christoff. “The main component, Emilio Lustau Manzanilla sherry, is an old-school, classic apéritif that comes from a particular region in Spain and cannot be found anywhere else. It’s one of the benchmark producers for sherry throughout the world.”
