Sherry Daiquiri


Ever needed a cocktail recipe for the left over Christmas sherry? Well, I might just have one for you. Meet the Sherry Daiquiri!

I’m trying to sell my house at the moment, which means I have to clear everything out, including the drinks cabinet.

Returning home from the pub last night (after a free dinner!) we fancied a daiquiri, but we were out of rum. We did, however, have some dry sherry that my friend Laura had been given as a gift. Using this I adapted a basic daiquiri recipe to create

OK, so it doesn’t necessarily looks like the most glamorous of cocktails, but you could dress it with some lime or orange peel. Put a cherry or an umbrella in it if you fancy.


2 parts sherry

1 part lime juice

1 part sugar syrup* (1/2 part if you’re using sweet sherry)

I’m not sure if there is a particular order to mixing this, but we just threw it all in a cocktail shaker with some ice, shook and then served in Martini glasses.

We noticed the sherry we used gave kind of a smoky flavour.



* You can buy sugar syrup in the supermarket, but I make my own using equal volumes of sugar and water (4 cups water, 4 cups sugar for example) and melt the sugar in the water over a low heat.
