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.

Cocktails for Five Sherry Styles
  • 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.
