A new sherry cocktail in Little Italy is our new favorite summer drink
I'd never ordered sherry before — in a cocktail or its own small glass ... until recently, that is.
- Admittedly, I thought of it as old-timey or something that fancy families brought out around the holidays.
- Plus, I've rarely seen the Spanish wine on menus, or maybe I just haven't been paying attention.
- Yes, but: Now, I will.
What happened: I got drinks with a friend at Nolita Hall in Little Italy recently and I can't stop thinking about the "Sherrly Legal" cocktail.
What's in it: Sanchez Romate Cream Sherry, Don Jose 18 year Oloroso, Gran Classico Lemon, pink peppercorn and strawberry basil.
- Each sip was refreshingly sweet, but the basil and pink peppercorn brought a savory, herbaceous flavor that cut through the fruitiness.
Pro tip: Enjoy this cocktail on a summer evening while it's still on the menu and pair with the cheese and charcuterie board.
When and where: Nolita Hall at 2305 India St.
- Happy hour is 4-5pm Tuesday-Friday with discounted apps and drinks.
The bar and restaurant are open:
- 4-10pm Tuesday-Thursday
- 4pm-12am on Friday
- 10am-12am on Saturday
- 10am-10pm on Sunday
