Created with warm nights in mind, this sherry sparkler is a refreshing antidote to summer’s swelter. Balancing the soft salinity of manzanilla sherry with the subtle spice of cinnamon syrup and the bright burst of fresh lemon, it’s a perfect low-proof party punch.
5 oz. manzanilla sherry
2 oz. fresh lemon juice
3 oz. cinnamon syrup
8 oz. seltzer, chilled
Tools: pitcher or punch bowl, wooden spoon
Glass: punch or juice
Garnish: lemon wheel and cinnamon stick
Combine the first 3 ingredients in a pitcher or punch bowl and chill. Once cold, fill the pitcher or bowl with ice, gently stir in the seltzer and garnish.
Because this cocktail is batched and chilled in the fridge, it can be made up to one day ahead of time; simply add the seltzer when serving. Serves 6-8.
