This sherry-basedaperitif was created in the 1860s at the Waldorf-Astoria in honor of Adonis, an extremely popular Broadway burlesque musical at the time about a hunky male statue who (spoiler alert) comes to life only to find humanity so unbearable that he chooses to turn back to stone. Were he to have been given this velvety cocktail, he might have had a change of heart.
- 1.5 oz Oloroso Sherry
- 1.5 oz Sweet Vermouth
- 2 hefty dashes Orange Bitters
- Orange Twist, for garnish
