Sherry and Tonic

sherry & tonic

Gentle enough to sip all afternoon.

At Small Victory in Austin, Steven Robbins took the Spanish affinity for Gin & Tonics to the next logical step: substituting Spain’s signature fortified wine for gin. The resulting Sherry and Tonic is gentle enough to sip all afternoon.


  • 3 oz. amontillado sherry
  • 1 tsp. simple syrup (1:1)
  • 2 dashes orange bitters
  • 3 oz. chilled tonic water (Small Victory uses Fever-Tree Indian Tonic)
  • 1 lemon peel
  • Glass:large wine goblet
  • Garnish:mint sprig, orange wheels


Combine the sherry, bitters and syrup in a glass filled with ice. Top with chilled tonic; twist the peel over drink and discard, then garnish.
