The Sanlucar Sling by Sahil Mehta is another drink perfect for the warmer days. A highball cocktail with a lot of sherry, and then some cherry and walnut to make things really interesting and tasty.
This was the perfect cocktail to try out one of our latest bottle buys in, Don Ciccio & Figli's Nocino Walnut Liqueur. We were recently on holiday in Washington DC, which happens to be where this delicious liqueur is produced. At a few local bars they used this liqueur in some cocktails and we immediately liked it and decided we needed to bring back a bottle to Sweden.
In this cocktail there is not a lot of the walnut liqueur, but it still shines through noticeably. Combined with the cherry liqueur it adds a dessert-like touch to the rather dry sherry.
This one was almost too easy to drink, so good! Cheers in the heat.
