COCKTAIL: DEL RÍO

“The Del Rio is a classic his and hers cocktail,” says Josh Harris, an award-winning barman and head of San Francisco cocktail and spirit consulting company, The Bon Vivants.

“If you want a drink that everyone in the place is going to like, mix up this cocktail.” Harris’s theory is that men like the tequila and women like the elderflower liqueur.

“And then there’s sherry as the wild-card ingredient.” Meaning? “Sherry has depth of taste and gives the cocktail its subtle flavour.”

INGREDIENTS:

- 40ml Ocho Plata tequila

- 20ml St. Germain elderflower liqueur

- 20ml Fino sherry

- 4 dashes Angostura Orange Bitters

- Glass: Coupe

- Trimmings: grapefruit peel

METHOD:

Put ingredients in shaker. Add ice and stir until the drink has become much more diluted. Pour into a cooled Coupe glass and decorate with grapefruit peel.
