    Adonis

    First mentioned in an 1887 book of cocktails, this is named after a now-forgotten Broadway musical.

    • Preparation time: 5 minutes

    Serves: 1

    Ingredients

    50ml dry sherry (we used fino)
    30ml sweet red vermouth (such as Martini Rosso)
    2 dashes Angostura bitters
    ice, for chilling
    strip of orange zest and/or an olive, to serve

    Method

    1. Put the sherry, vermouth and bitters in a cocktail shaker or jug with plenty of ice and stir well to chill. Strain into a martini or coupe glass. Garnish with a strip of orange zest, twisting it over the glass so it sprays its aromatic oils over the surface, and an olive if liked.
