Don’t Forget the Struggle, Don’t Forget the Streets
A young mezcal that has not been aged for more than 2 months.
An Italian grappa based amaro, distilled with gentian, bitter orange and peppermint; 31% ABV.
A variety of sherry characterized by being darker than fino but lighter than oloroso. It starts as a fino, fortified to approximately 13.5% alcohol with a cap of flor yeast limiting its exposure to the air, however becomes an amontillado when the flor fails to develop adequately or is killed by additional fortification. Without the layer of flor, amontillado must then be fortified to approximately 17.5% alcohol to slow oxidation. The drink is slowly exposed to oxygen through porous American or Canadian oak casks, gaining a darker colour and richer flavour. It is named after the Montilla region of Spanin where it originated in the 18th century, however the name is also used commercially as a simple measure of color to label any sherry lying between a fino and an oloroso.
Stir all the ingredients over ice, then strain into a chilled Nick & Nora glass. #stir #straight
