Spanglish Cocktail

Spanglish Cocktail

Serves: 1 • Time: 5 minutes

While brainstorming with Cervantes Ramirez of New York City bar The Ship, Powell created a series of cocktails using the Spanish fortified wine Sherry. In the Spanglish, Powell combines distinctly American and Spanish spirits (bourbon and sherry) to create a strong and lightly spiced drink. It’s a perfect nightcap or end-of-dinner digestif.
