Sherry, meet Negroni

Next week marks a celebration of two of my favorite beverages: Sherry and Negronis. That’s right, June 2-8 is both International Sherry Week AND Negroni Week. There will be plenty of great drinking going on, so we encourage you to make the most of it. For one thing, you should definitely check out our FREE Sherry Tasting on Tuesday, June 3 with Talia Baiocchi (editor in chief of PUNCH, and author of the forthcoming book Sherry from Ten Speed Press, October 14) at Momofuku Ko.

If you’re feeling like a Negroni out on the town, check out the list of participating bars.

And if you’re feeling DIY, you can combine the best of both worlds with these two cocktails that combine Oloroso – a dry, nutty and slightly richer style of sherry – with bittersweet Campari:

The Sherroni

1 oz Oloroso Sherry
½ oz Dry Vermouth
¾ oz Sweet Vermouth
½ oz Campari

Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice and stir. Strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice. Garnish with an orange slice.
