Named after the first Broadway musical to run for more than 500 shows, The Adonis was created in the late 19th century when sherry was at the height of popularity. Dry and woodsy, this amontillado sherry cocktail pairs well with salty, savory appetizers and makes an excellent aperitif. Palomino Fino is an amontillado sherry-style wine produced at Quady Winery with biodynamically grown Palomino grapes.
1½ oz. Palomino Fino (or other amontillado sherry)
¾ oz. Vya Sweet Vermouth
¾ oz. Vya Extra Dry Vermouth
2 dashes orange bitters
Combine ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir then strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
