Núria’s Sherry Recipes

Bizet’s Carmen is a creature of passion and impeccable taste. How does she seduce Don José at the end of Act One, luring him into letting her escape as he is meant to be taking her to jail? With Sherry, of course. Sherry is one of Andalucía’s great passions, of which Seville is the capital and cultural center. It’s the natural drink of young and old, a wine of incredible variety and versatility. Enjoy an assortment of dry Sherry and Sherry cocktails that will deliver you directly to the heady flavors of Carmen’s Sevilla.

Mulled cider (apple cider is simmered with orange, honey, cloves, and cinnamon) is given a mild boozy kick from Oloroso Sherry added just before serving. Serve warm.

This is a big cocktail at Sevilla’s Feria de Abril. Fill a tall glass with ice. Pour in 2 ounces Fino Sherry and top with 6 ounces Sprite (not 7Up). Stir. Add a twist of lemon. Or prepare in a pitcher.
