Fino is the driest, most saline style of Sherry. It’s made from high-acid Palomino grapes and aged under a blanket of yeast called flor, which protects the wine from oxidation. Fino is best well-chilled, and it especially shines in martini-style cocktails.
- 2 ounces fino Sherry
- 1 ounces Perry’s Tot Navy Strength Gin
- 2 dashes celery bitters
- 1 olive (for garnish)
Combine all ingredients, except garnish, in mixing glass with ice. Stir until chilled. Strain into Nick & Nora glass. Garnish with olive on cocktail pick.
