Julia Child Sherry Cocktail

Jim Kearns, beverage director, ACME, New York City

Fino is the driest, most saline style of Sherry. It’s made from high-acid Palomino grapes and aged under a blanket of yeast called flor, which protects the wine from oxidation. Fino is best well-chilled, and it especially shines in martini-style cocktails.


2 ounces fino Sherry
1 ounces Perry’s Tot Navy Strength Gin
2 dashes celery bitters
1 olive (for garnish)


Combine all ingredients, except garnish, in mixing glass with ice. Stir until chilled. Strain into Nick & Nora glass. Garnish with olive on cocktail pick.
