Shaking Up Sherry Cocktails for the Next Holiday Party

We’ve all been there. Two drinks and a tiny piece of cheese into the company holiday party, and you’re already feeling buzzed – add a third cocktail into the mix and suddenly your having a breakdance competition with your boss.


The holiday season is officially here with a vengeance and with parties lined up as far as the eye can see, pacing yourself is of the utmost importance. Enter sherry, your new best friend. Low in ABV and currently undergoing a popular resurgence, sherry is a fortified wine made from white grapes grown in Andalusia, Spain. There are three types of sherry – fino, amontillado and oloroso – all of which are excellent on their own or mixed into a cocktail.

Eschew your old standbys and ordering up a sherry libation this season. Below are some sherry cocktails around town – they’re perfect for refined holiday imbibing.
