Bone dry and boozy, this cocktail is aimed at those who have a penchant for both sherry and aquavit, not to mention bittersweet artichoke liqueurs - hardly mass market then. Nor are Aston Martin cars but I want one.
Be warned - use the wrong sherry and this drink falls apart - don’t be tempted to sub manzanilla with a fino.
