Have you ever filled your empty PET plastic bottle with young amontillado sherry at a petrol station? If you haven’t, head to Jerez de la Frontera as soon as you can! The palate neat started off with plenty of heat and a bit of salt but then soon evolved into a strawberry and banana flambé with butterscotch sauce. When we added plenty of water and gave it a little time to rest an almost perfect classic sherry cobbler cocktail emerged – oloroso and PX sherry, ‘blackstrap’ rum, maraschino liqueur, fresh pineapple and lime juice. Refreshing, long and fruity with a hint of that salty-savoury-earthy note typical for that kind of rum.
