Mr. Bates Bittersweet Cocktail


This recipe comes from Downton Abbey–not originally from the south, but sure is refreshing on a warm summer evening! (makes one drink


1 ounce Amaro Nonino

2 ounce Pedro Ximenez Sherry. If you can’t find this make sure you use a good dry sherry. Amaro is sweet so this helps cut the sweetness.

Orange bitters and Angostura bitters, a few drops of each

Orange peel and orange slice for garnish


In a short glass filled with cracked ice, add the Amaro Nonino, the sherry and a couple of dashes of orange bitters. (Angostura bitters works well here too.) Stir. Twist the orange peel to express its oils into the glass then drop it in as a garnish. Enjoy!
