Fino Sherry Cocktail – Maria Sangrienta

The quintessential breakfast cocktail is now new and improved, because this Sherry cocktail is a riff on the classic Bloody Mary. Bloody Mary’s can be a bit divisive, due to their savoury nature. However, if you’re already a fan of the original, the Sherry version will be great for you. The addition of the dry Fino makes the Maria Sangrienta not only more savoury, but lighter. Indeed, you might be able to have one extra drink over breakfast or brunch. Cheers to that!
