Swap the usual Manhattan or other boozy cocktail for this Sherry-forward sipper. Nutty Manzanilla Sherry mixes with Bonal, a French wine-based aperitif similar to sweet vermouth. A small amount of walnut liqueur adds satisfying richness.
- 1 ounce Lustau Manzanilla Sherry
- 1½ ounces Bonal
- ½ ounce Nocino (walnut liqueur)
- 3 dashes Angostura bitters
- Lemon twist (for garnish)
In mixing glass filled with ice, stir all ingredients (except garnish). Strain into coupe glass. Garnish with lemon twist.
