How to make:

STIR all ingredients with ice and fine strain into ice-filled glass.


Orange zest twist (discarded) and float half shelled walnut


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.
