I’ve no idea who came up with this drink, but I can tell you this: Cádiz is a province near Jerez, Spain. This where sherry comes from. Interestingly, both the words sherry and Jerez come from the name of the Persian ruler Rustam Shirazi who wanted a style of wine similar to Persian wine made with the Shiraz grape. Sherry, Jerez, Cadiz, Shiraz…. Oh, and sherry was also called sack many years ago. Perhaps because the bottles were protected by small burlap bags. Anyway…
This is a particularly one-dimensional drink in spite of the interesting ingredients. This is also a tiny cocktail if made with the amounts given in the recipe. You could easily double it and still be ok to drive home.
I used an Amontillado sherry. The drier the better to offset the brandy and triple sec. Overall, the drink is ok, but I don’t ever need to have one again in this lifetime.
0.25oz blackberry-flavored brandy
0.25oz dry sherry
0.5oz triple sec
Shake with ice and strain into ice-filled old-fashioned glass.
