About this Cocktail

After enjoying the Rockin' Like Bamboo the night before (via Imbibe Magazine), I was motivated to create my own riff on the Bamboo (again). I appreciated the split nature of the Rockin' Like Bamboo, so I kept the dry and blanc vermouth mix; moreover, I split the sherry between the Fino that I associate with the drink and the Amontillado that I utilized before I added Fino into my wine fridge. To take things one step further, I Improved things in an 1876 Jerry Thomas sort of way with accents of Maraschino and absinthe especially given how well Maraschino pairs with nutty sherries like Amontillado.

Ingredients:
  • 3/4 oz Amontillado (or Oloroso) Sherry
  • 3/4 oz Fino (or Manzanilla) Sherry
  • 3/4 oz Dry Vermouth

  • 1 dash Absinthe (I used 20 drops)
  • 1 dash Angostura Bitters
  • 1 dash Orange Bitters
  • As garnish: Orange twist
Preparation:

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with an orange twist.
