Summer Sherry Cocktails From Across The Country

Summer Sherry Cocktails From Across The Country

Last month we introduced you to five refreshing Sherry cocktails from South, all perfect for enjoyment on a hot summer day. But you don’t have to be from the South to know how to make a summer cocktail. This month we have three cocktails from across the country, one each from San Francisco, New York and Chicago, to add to the Sherry cocktail archive.

We’re always looking for more cocktails to add to our archive so please help us by sending your favorite recipes to us at cocktails@demaisonselections.com.
