The perfect after-dinner cocktail at any time of year but particularly appropriate over the festive period due to its ingredients – Pedro Ximénez sherry tastes like Christmas pudding, mandarins are not just for Christmas and walnuts are best cracked whilst watching a Christmas special.


Created in December 2013 by yours truly (Simon Difford) and Paloma Alos at the Cabinet Room, London, England.
