Thought to be the original Bamboo recipe with 2 parts dry fino sherry to 1 part rich sweet vermouth (modern recipes are usually equal parts). Balanced and complex, heavier than Bamboo recipes with dry vermouth.


Adapted from a recipe in Thomas Stuart's 1904 Stuart's Fancy Drinks and How to mix them.
