Almondo Cocktail Recipe
Created by Death to Sour Mix: If you like drinks that are different, this is one of those. Tart from the citrus and the sherry, sweet from the orgeat and smoky from the mezcal & hot sauce. If you have some spicy bitters you’ve been meaning to use again, now is the time
Serve in a Highball Glass
2 oz Amontillado sherry [ Lustao ]
1 oz mezcal [ Montelobos ]
1 oz fresh lime juice
1 oz orgeat [ YOU CAN MAKE YOUR OWN ]
1/2 oz simple syrup
2 dashes of hot sauce [ Cholula ]
Garnish: Lime Wedge
How to Make
Add all the ingredients in your shaker tin, add a bunch of ice and wake it up.
Strain into a chilled collins glass with ice and garnish with a lime wedge.
The major modifier here would be the sherry. I played around with Oloroso, which was way too dry and ended with Amontillado which had a lovely sweetness but I’m curious if a good Manzanilla would work just right here. If you enjoy sherry cocktails, let me know what some of your favorites are.
