The Adonis is a well-love classic cocktail built from equal parts sherry and sweet vermouth.  It's thought that the cocktail was created in honor of the wildly successful 1884 musical "Adonis."  Low-alcohol and pleasantly easy to drink, the Adonis is an approachable cocktail that's perfect for entertaining.  



  1. Add the fino sherry and the sweet vermouth to a mixing glass filled with ice and stir until well-chilled.

  2. Strain into a chilled coupe glass and garnish with the orange peel.
