Over the years sherry has gotten stuck into the reputation as being a cooking wine, but new found interest in this wine has more people mixing it into cocktails while out with friends. For those who are unsure exactly what sherry is, this fortified wine with its origins in Spain has a distinct maderized flavor that lends itself well to cooking and for mixed drinks. Of course the mixed drinks have been out of vogue for some time now but a recent surge in hip bars around the country are bringing these mixes back in time for this New Year’s Eve.
Sherry has been around since 1100 BC and there is no shortage of fine vineyards, which still make a line of this distinct wine each season. White wine glasses are the chosen wine accessories for enjoying this nutty but tangy wine and it is mixed in many classic drinks as well as some new interesting combinations that are springing up especially in the Los Angeles area.
This New Year between sips of champagne try a little something new, or old, and get a mixed drink with sherry for a unique taste experience. Those in your group will be impressed with these amazing cocktails and your wine knowledge.
