The B-Side: A Sherry Cocktail

“The B-side of a record was the one with the less-popular song, but the one that ultimately became your favorite tune,” says Dominick’s general manager Jessica Schmidt. Same goes for this low-ABV hit, which combines fino sherry and gin with fresh citrus, mint and seltzer. “Side B is always cooler,” she says.

1½ oz. fino sherry
½ oz. gin
½ oz. fresh lemon juice
½ oz. fresh lime juice
½ oz. simple syrup (1:1)
2 mint leaves
1 oz. seltzer
Tools: shaker, strainer
Glass: highball
Garnish: lemon and lime wheels and bouquet of fresh mint

Combine all ingredients except seltzer, and shake with ice. Strain into an ice-filled glass, top with seltzer and garnish.
